How to keep k3b from compiling in kdeextragear-1

Hello, Everyone :)
I have two questions relating to the same topic:
1. Does k3b still change /etc/fstab and /dev to the point where XCdroast
doesn't work properly (that maybe just the non-root mode.  I can't
remember.)?  I believe that k3b used to make CD drives be under a
different group than Xcdroast made them to be.
2. If the answer to the above question is that k3b and XCdroast still
don't play well together, how can I keep k3b from compiling when I
compile kdeextragear-1 from the CVS?

I tried adding the following to ./configure: "--without-k3b"  The ouput
from make still said that k3b was going to be compiled.  I am not
willing to take the risk that "make" is lying to me, so I would prefer
to find out from an expert before I risk installing k3b.
I have nothing against k3b whatsoever, but since I prefer XCdroast, I
would prefer to not install k3b, if installing it means that my
/etc/fstab will be messed up.

Thanks in advance for your help :)
