svn co koffice-src
mkdir koffice-build
cd koffice-build
cmake ../koffice-src -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/some/where
ccmake . (and there you can disable all application you don't want to build 
set to off all BUILD_something except BUILD_krita)
make; make install

Simpler for who ?
Please read .

As for build complexity, I have started a project of "weekly" package for 
KOffice, but it's currently limited to OpenSuSE (it will be extended at a 
later stage to other distributions) and I didn't have time to spend time on 
it recently :/
