The pissing off the sysadmins is still an issue I would like to see
resolved. This is another, separate issue that I brought up a few days
ago. So this isn't a "new one" or an excuse. I don't see how the
installation path != runpath.

This is my issue, which Adrian seemed to understand perfectly:

/usr/lib/libqt4.so (linked against stdcxx)

A binary application built on someon else's system that is *not*
linked against stdcxx picks that library up and then fails.

That is the issue.

So, to put this in very clear terms:

What is the planned installation path of the C++ dependencies we have?

How will it be ensured that the C++ dependencies KDE has that are
incompatible with other C++ applications not linked against stdcxx
won't cause issues?

Since all I keep hearing is "it's going to /usr and you'll like it or
else!" I haven't been give any indication that it will be going as:
