I haven't gotten _any_ answer. When I read similar threads on this list I
see no answers. It's almost as if the KDE people know it's broken but
aren't saying so :-/
I did find a page for LTSP on recompiling arts with nas support. It's an

Even if you're not using LTSP (try it; I understand it's very nice), this
still might be helpful for what you're trying to do.
