The main change to the standard instructions is:
Note no sudo is needed on the "make install" since it's within my home  
directory.  I then use
   /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 --library-path ~/KMM/KDE4/lib64  
after making a copy of my latest .kmy file.  (modify as appropriate if  
you are not on 64 bit)

It seems to work fine.  It can't find the manual, but I haven't dug  
into that at all yet.
