Ha! You are right. I copied over the kabc data folder and relaunched kopete. 
The addressbook links were restored. The problem i had was that i had in my 
previous setup moved from file based contacts to directory as the default and 
forgot to do the same in the new setup. After making the change it now works 
fine. Thanks for that pointer.
