1) Right now when one builds kde-qt with phonon and does not install Qt then 
kdebase does not build.
So kde-qt phonon != kdesupport phonon for trunk build when phonon headers are 
not installed from Qt.

I did not retry since I posted to kde-buildsystem since I have to remove 
manually phonon from kdesupport to retest but as noone answered, I suppose 
it's not been dealt with.
In the meantime I suggest building kde-qt without phonon and using kdesupport 
phonon as done for kde4.3.

2) kde-qt phonon does not have all backends that kdesupport phonon has.
