Yes what makes Krita difficult to build currently is not beeing part of 
KOffice, it's the transition between KDE3.x to KDE4.x . Once KDE4 is main 
stream on your distribution, it will just be a matter of downloading koffice, 
and the "extra" step of deselecting application you don't want to build.
