Ah, ok! Then it's much clearer to me:

1) Install KBE so you have all the required build tools.
2) Install KDE dependencies (possibly using the existing build setup in 
cvsdude, which is full of GNU makefiles and GNU sed constructs).
3) Build KDE itself.

I was confused by "KDE Build Environment" as if it was about building KDE 
itself (and all of its dependencies). Now that that's cleared up, it makes a 
lot more sense. Does the name "KDE Build Environment" really fit? I mean, 
it's basically a whole bunch of modern build tools you would want anyway. 
What about /opt/gnubuild ?

Is the intention to specfile the whole thing as one blob, or each part
