Yes, but this automatism doesn't do anything when the prefix is unknown. So
it's unusable for us in this situation.
Hint: It should treat it always and should fall back to the installing the
toolbar-icon files to the default icon theme (which is hicolor on KDE-3.0).

I don't want to depend on a base which is under construction. It keeps me
away from doing the actual things. ;) Second, the extensions of KDE-3.1 aren't
actually used in Gideon. So why keeping the users of distributions of today
away from Gideon? ;)
