Revision 772083 compiled for me this morning and passed nearly all unittests.

Sorry, I guess I was rather unsure about the right procedure, and I thought
I would have to redo the work myself. I immediately mailed kde-release after

It may be a ddgood addition to the procedure. Where can I download the tarball 
for testing? Or I guess I could just as well switch to the tag and give that
a try.

I don't have compilation problems very often myself, so I don't dare guarantee
that r772083 will compile for everyone, but I think that's a good release.
