I had to do similar things to the Makefiles, although it was just for
the cfitsio library (and perhaps getdata).

Don keeps beating me to the punch.  Ditto from my end.  I certainly
can't package up kst for Fedora (and I doubt anyone for any distribution
without these in order (along with a working DESTDIR-type target for
make install).  

Finally, is this beta supposed to be feature compatible with the kst 1.x
branch?  Should I submit bugs for things that you can't do with kst2
that you can in kst1?  If so, should I use the bugzilla, or just post
messages here?  

That said, from the 34 seconds I've spent fiddling with kst2, it seems
much, MUCH faster and more responsive.
