[kde-linux] Building KDE 4.14.0

I have had some difficulty building some of the KDE-4.14.0 modules
because they contained files with one, or more, instances of the string:
"#include <Phonon/". Note that this case sensitive.
I am not going to lament because someone made a stupid error. People
make mistakes and my cats sometimes help me type. What I am going to
lament is the total aversion to quality control that appears to infest KDE.
This is an example -- an excellent example -- of where TQM [Total
Quality Management], which basically means that you are responsible for
managing your own quality, would have prevented a problem.
Now, I personally would _never_ commit anything before confirming that
it would compile and, if needed, do some testing. But, the mention of
TQM and quality control gives the KDE developers fits. Well, here is
another example of why they need to embrace quality control instead of
disrespecting those that advocate it. It takes a lot of hubris to
commit something without testing it first.
Too bad that I am no longer a developer or patches to fix the problems
would be attached. I am not even going to write up a bug report because
I will just get insulted.
