Can we please have an updated and confirmed working "build KDE from source as separate user"?

I did exactly that and it doesn't change one thing. It still reads from /usr

[kde-devel at Mark-Linux ~]$ kde4-config --localprefix
/home/kde-devel/.kde/
[kde-devel at Mark-Linux ~]$ kde4-config --path exe
/home/kde-devel/.kde/lib/kde4/libexec/:/home/kde-devel/kde/lib/kde4/libexec/:/home/kde-devel/kde/bin/
[kde-devel at Mark-Linux ~]$

I added my "profile.sh" to .kde/env/ and still nothing.

[kde-devel at Mark-Linux ~]$ echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH
/home/kde-devel/kde/lib:/home/kde-devel/kde/lib:/home/kde-devel/kde/lib:/home/kde-devel/kde/lib:
[kde-devel at Mark-Linux ~]$ echo $PATH
/home/kde-devel/kde/bin:/home/kde-devel/kde/bin:/home/kde-devel/kde/bin:/home/kde-devel/kde/bin:/home/kde-devel/kde/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/share/java/apache-ant/bin:/usr/bin/vendor_perl:/usr/bin/core_perl
[kde-devel at Mark-Linux ~]$

I also wonder.. We have:
.xprofile
.profile

WHY isn't KDM just freaking using .xprofile?
KDM's own "Xsession" file contains this:

[ -f /etc/xprofile ] && . /etc/xprofile
[ -f $HOME/.xprofile ] && . $HOME/.xprofile

so it should just read that.

Yes, i'm really irritated by KDE at the moment. Specially if i just want to
make a darn dolphin patch!
How can i FORCE KDE to read the bin's from /home first?
