           Summary: missing building documentation dependencies
           Product: www.kde.org
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Compiled Sources
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kde-www at kde.org
        ReportedBy: ccx004 at coventry.ac.uk

Version:            (using KDE 4.3.1)
Compiler:          Not relevant 
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Compiled From Sources

KDE 4 seems to be very hard to build with version 4. This is because there
doesn't appear to be a complete and accurate list of required software. I have
only been able to build part of kdelibs since it failed because libfontconfig
was the wrong version. Having fixed that it now fails with an error in
regexp.cpp related to PCRE. I am sure the developers have actually built
kdelibs so I am guessing that I don't have the right version of something.
While I could work that out I fear it would only get me a little further before
I hit another missing or incorrect version of something. In other words why not
make available a list of required software with minimum versions and perhaps a
list of the order that things should be built in. It would also be worthwhile
mentioning if kdesupport is required as there seems to be some confusion about
whether it is or not. Finally if kdesupport is required why is it so well
hidden and not just in the same place as all the other software.
