So it is, so it is (just a name). So we've got all the build things over 
in /opt/kdebld (or possibly /opt/kdebuild) and can work from there.

Yes, I meant "are all the components of KBE going to be packaged separately or 
will they all be part of one big package?" I don't know the specs work

You didn't list stdcxx earlier: so that is part of kdebld as well? My instinct 
is to call that a KDE dependency, not part of the build system. So from here 
forwards we could rely on the KBE being available in the rest of the build 
setup (take a look in cvsdude Build/, which already held tools and patches 
for a number of build tools and a bunch of dependencies).

Gosh, that makes me sound so .. bossy. I'm mostly trying to coordinate between 
historical decisions which people may be working towards and your work. In 
many ways I'd say: *you* are doing stuff, so *you* get to decide.

If I recall correctly, we were going to:

- Install dependencies in /opt/kdesupport, including libstdcxx
- Install Qt in /opt/qt-<version>
- Install KDE in /opt/kde-<version>

But that can be found somewhere in the archives of kde-solaris (or in Stefan's 
memory, I'm sure).
