Sure; the reason I included the line is to encourage people to install
kdelibs-frameworks in a different prefix than the rest of KDE. Otherwise their
KDE will break at the first BIC change.
And later on when we port things like kde-runtime, we want to be able to point
to a prefix that doesn't have the 'old libs'.
Side note: this is where it shows that it's also useful to have the self-
compiled kdelibs dependencies (soprano, dbusmenu, and so on) in a different
prefix than the rest of KDE (kdesupport_trunk in my example), to be able to use
them for both master and frameworks :-)
