can you perhaps share these files? I am myself looking for a way to work on
KMyMoney code without the need to install it using “port install” every time.

Well, KMyMoney, Skrooge and other apps heavily rely on KParts and plugins,
which is why kbuildsycoca probably also needs to know where to find newly built

I’m interested in those bash files. Might try building it as a dedicated user.
