What I do is to edit startkde, and set the PATH in there. If you set up
the environment variables in /etc/profile, you won't be able to run KDE 3
sessions any more. (But remember that running KDE 4 will update
application config files in an incompatible way so that the KDE 3
applications won't be able to use them correctly any more. So keep a
separate $KDEHOME for each KDE version.)
