./build_kst worked here on Slackware, so that's an improvement.

The INSTALL instructions are vague on how to build a packageable version.
Is a DESTDIR-like thing supported?  Is that what's called OUTPUT_DIR
passed to ./install-kst?  That one doesn't seem to do anything.

Looking at the qmake generated makefiles seem to indicate I should set
the envirnomental variable INSTALL_ROOT; so let's try creating a kst
that will eventually be installed in /absolute/prefix, but that I want
to stage, for packaging reasons in /dest/dir (ie. so everything will be
installed in /dest/dir/absolute/prefix/*)  I tried:

$ INSTALL_ROOT=/dest/dir ./install-kst anything-but-debug /absolute/prefix

almost works.  It installs things in /dest/dir/* instead of the intended
/dest/dir/absolute/prefix/*.  (ie. setting INSTALL_ROOT ignores

As an aside, you should point out in the INSTALL document that the
INSTALL_PREFIX passed to ./install-kst should be an absolute path or
weirdness will ensue.  (The particular weirdness is things get installed
in the src tree.)

Doing something like

$ ./install-kst still-not-debug /some/path/not/usr

properly installs kst2 in /some/path/not/usr, but the executable can't
be run, because there are no RPATHs in it pointing to
/some/path/not/usr/lib .
