the script is still there, but it was not updated for two months, because i 
had other university things to do. getting a nice build system for windows up 
and running is one of the things that we want to do. we are aware, that it is 
not that easy to compile kde on windows right now. we are working on this...

we are always happy, when people join in and help us with some tasks, for 
example we would be happy, when some python hacker would step up and keep the 
emerge scripts up-to-date, that job is quite simple. or somebody could keep 
the online documentation up-to-date...

regards, Holger
