You realize, I hope, that since qt4 is an absolutely uncontestable dependency of
kde4, telling me that phonon can be one or the other, but not both, is crazy on
it's face.  Either you're not telling me the entire story, or maybe I'm
basically missing something that you think is obvious?  I would be willing to
gamble large amounts that it's my misunderstanding you, could you maybe give
this one more try?

I hope you can see why it looks so strange to me.  Are you saying maybe that you
can't run qt4 and KDE together?  (I'm drooling now).  If KDE ships with it's own
version of phonon, howcome the x11/kde4 ports all have phonon as a dependency?
Go look at kdelibs4.  Something isn't adding up here.

If it were a compilation thing, I would be completely happy to suspect something
in my includes, somewhere, but this is the Makefile that's gone wacky.  It looks
perfectly good, too.  I can't see anything being brought in automatically, like
a Makefile.inc, either, so this isn't making any sense, either.  how could a
makefile that cvs claims has a zero diff, and cvsup claims is fine also, be bad?
 And if it's not the source of the Makefile itself, hunh, my head hurtz.

This isn't a good day for me, I guess.
