Sorry for any confusion, but I'm not running Gentoo. I have built a distro for 
my own purposes and I use that. I merely mentioned that I read somewhere that 
Gentoo was doing this. I just assumed there was an option I could add to 
kdelibs-3.5.10 such as --default-home-dir="~/.kde3" or something similar.

I rebuilt all the KDE 4.1.1 packages useing .kde4 as the home.

Anyway, I have it all resolved now. Thank you.
