I am going to study a little your results. I still would very much like to 
preserve the alternative to install either in /usr or in /opt/kde4, as advised 
by the linux-from-scratch people, as the last method has certain advantages ( 
and I have done my installation this way ;-)  ). It seems neccessary also to 
inform e.g. Bruce Dubbs ( I am going to do this )

Perhaps the contribution of  Randy McMurchy
" I'm doing a GNOME build (slowly) in /opt/gnome and I have

The first time I saw this dialog !! Thanks

Still I think that the actual policy of KDE is wrong. For a single user on an 
island, all this security issues are superflous. For users in corporate 
networks, the security can and will be provided by the IT administrator of the 
company. And for in-between users, each one should be able to decide, how much 
security he wants. This is freedom ! But we have to live with it.

Thank you very much for your intensive work !
