Congratulations, James, you are much more on the way than I am. I build 
kdelibs with the -DKAUTH_BACKEND=PolkitQt-1 option, then I build kdebase. 
After that, my system did not more start. I got a kdm message. "(EE) Failed to 
initialize GLX extension ( compatible nvidia x driver not found)". But I do 
not care about any GLX extensions, my IBM ThinkPad laptop has an Intel card 
with intel drivers, not any nvidia ones ! I am realy getting nuts.

Definitly, the system is becoming unusable for normal persons. Why am I at 
home, with my closed shop PC, not allowed to change the time, timezone ? And 
my badly needed programs like kmymoney, qbankmanager etc. can not be run, 
due to a false timezone ?
Please help. Do I need to recompile the complete chain of kdelibs, base, work 
etc ? And should we change to 4.4.1 or would we increase the problems with 
that ?
