        - yasm 0.6.2

If you want a copy, you can fetch from this place

For instal type kbe-install
For uninstall type kbe-remove

Note: you don't need root access for installing the KBE or building
KDE anymore, but the build user needs to have the 'Software
Installation' profile. In a typical case, you just need to add

     user_name::::profiles=Software Installation

to /etc/user_attr.

You can choose destination install directory, but I strongly recommend
to stay with default selection which is /opt/kdebld.

Second recommendation is: set up directory where Sun Studio is
installed, don't leave /usr/bin/cc.

All provided tools are compiled and build on the destination machine
and everything is installed in /opt/kdebld directory.

After successful install you have to type . /opt/kdebld/bin/env.(c)sh
to proper set up environment (set PATH, CC, CXX and so on ...)

I believe that is far enough along to open up discussion and begin
getting feedback form all of you.

Looking forward to you comments!
