Multiple KDE directories: $KDEDIRS and /etc/kde3rc

In KDE 2 I used to combine different locations of KDE packages (local,
file server) by setting the KDEDIRS variable, which worked fine. In KDE
3 I found that this variable is explicitly unset in startkde (at least
for SuSE Linux), and all comments I found about that mentioned that the
"prefixes" entry in /etc/kde3rc should be used instead. Unfortunately
this does not work properly; Kicker does not find some of its entries
anymore when additional entries in kde3rc, and kbuildsycoca still seems
to rely on $KDEDIRS.
What's the correct way to combine different KDE locations in KDE3? Is
there a documentation of /etc/kde3rc? I don't even know if I separated
the pathes in thr prefixes entry correctly (I used ":").
