I think that $KDEDIR should point to where root has installed KDE.  It
should only contain one directory.  $KDEDIRS should point to the main KDE
directory and the other one you install it to separated by colons.

export KDEDIR=/usr
export KDEDIRS=/usr/local/kde3:/project/algorithmics/

I think.

Guid luck
