Two points;
When you set the paths you must make sure that the new kde is referenced 
before the old kde especially where the old kde is in a system standard path 
like /usr/bin so your path scripts should be similiar to the following;

export PATH="/home/david/kde341/bin:/$PATH"
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/home/david/kde341/lib:/$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"
export KDEDIR=/home/david/

the other is as JRT makes in his reply to you.
