I suppose that there will be an argument about whether this is a KDE bug 
or a D-Bus bug.  But, the simple fact is that KDE will install 
"*.service" files which are necessary for KAuth to work in places where 
D-Bus can't find them dispute the fact that the build system knows the 
$PREFIX where D-Bus is installed.

IAC, I have found a workaround and have revised:


I have KDE-4.4.1 installed in: "/usr/KDE-4.4" and setting the date and 
time works in System Settings although I still see issues with the 
timezone and setting the I/O Scheduler in System Monitor.  If you follow 
the instructions to build from source, it should work for you too.  If 
not, please post your problems here.
