4.6.5 seems to be running well here. Is there still a konstruct utility
that was used back around kde-3 to download, build and install it?
Sortas bitchy because it did not account for all the deps before it started
the build, so working around that meant it took 3 or 4 days, but the result
was quite stable when done. I haven't used it to do that for several years
now, but would be willing to try it again.
