According to guide, it is usable for both stable and trunk release,
they only mention difference in Qt version (i have 4.3., which is what they recommend)
> IAC, did you read any of my blurb:
I have not read it before, so I did now. You have an example .bash_profile, so I
have compared it to my .bashrc (included in my original post along the build logs) and
only difference I saw was about XDG paths. I do not quite understand it, could you
please comment it?

I was using dependencies for my distro on
hope its the same :)

I installed it to /home/kde-devel/kde

Yes, I use dedicated user account kde-devel, as advised in the tutorial.

I set my LD_LIBRARY_PATH according to tutorial in my .bashrc file (included in my origial post along the build logs)
