Actual answer to your question:

Open a Konsole, temporarily add: "/usr/X11R6/lib/xscreensaver" to your PATH and run kappfinder

	export PATH

Then after: "kbuildsycoca" runs, they should show up in the Control Center.

NOTE: you don't have as much control if you run the X screen savers through KDE, but it does work.
