The idea is to use libs in /opt/fsw4sun/lib for KDE but in the same time to be 
able to use my own utilities with their libs. If LD_LIBRARY_PATH is set, it 
takes precedence of runpath and I will have trouble.

After trying a few days, KDE works quite well without LD_LIBRARY_PATH. Your 
runpath are good :-) I have only trouble with cupsdoprint which needs a 
# ldd /opt/kde-3.3.1/bin/cupsdoprint.exe
        libCrun.so.1 =>  /usr/lib/libCrun.so.1
        libCstd.so.1 =>  /usr/lib/libCstd.so.1
        libcups.so =>    /net/limoux/dsk1/local/lib/libcups.so
        libssl.so.1 =>   (file not found)
        libcrypto.so.1 =>        (file not found)
Oddly, there is no problem with cupsdconf which uses same libraries.

Another small problem (not related), konqueror crashes when I right-click on a 
bookmark to change properties.
