Ah, good to know that there is a work around in case the problem isn't fixed 
until the next time I have a couple of hours available for KDE hacking.

It is still kind of annoying that updating the Qt branch used for KDE 
development and change of requirements weren't coordinated better.

I would have expected that kde-qt had been updated *prior* to increasing the 
minimum required version of KDE's build system files.

Maybe the person doing the increment is using the 4.6 branch and didn't know 
that the branch recommended for KDE development hadn't been updated yet?
