Hi Gianluca,

thanks for your fast reply.

I haven't done that yet, but that makes sense. I'll try that the next  days.

That's exactly what I did when compiling OpenLDAP and kdebase. I
looked at the SlackBuild scripts and used the configure options from

No, I haven't tried the latest KDE version so far. Honestly, that's

I'm afraid I'll have to try that the next days when I have some time
