You need to do this before you do the "make" or it will try to remove  
all files from the newly compiled version.  My problem was due to NOT  
removing files from an older version that are no longer created (or  
created in different directories) by the new version.  I suspect MOST  
of those are harmless, but based on some of the output I've seen, old  
plugins can cause problems (or just nasty output) if they fail to load  
because of changes in the whole plugin system.  As I said - nothing to  
actually crash the program (that I've found yet) but enough error  
messages to not want to trust things as is.

For me, only distro installed stuff goes in /usr.  Some of my own  
compiles go in /usr/local.  However, testing versions of KMM go into  
either ~/KDE/install/ or ~/KDE/installframe/ and I have scripts set up  
to make it all work without stomping on any system versions.
