Thanks for all your help. I got it working now, and afaik all components seems 
to be working alright.
I had some more linking problems, but the solution was similar to your fix. 
Also, during "make install", it was trying to place the binaries in NONE/bin, 
but replacing NONE with /opt/kde3 in all affected Makefiles solved that.
I'm not sure why it was trying to put them in NONE/bin. Even running configure 
with --bindir=/opt/kde3/bin didn't solve it...
