I've had a little problem on my "virgin" build of KDE4: the "personal
information" button in system settings could not be started, because the
akonadi server had the wrong back-end:
Default is QMYSQL, which needs the build order:
mysql (mariadb) - qt4 - akonadi.

But mysql is optional for qt4? and is in recommended later on.

OTOH, akonadi runs perfectly well with the QSQLITE3 back-end, and since sqlite
is recommended for Qt4, the qt4 plugin is built. This is not the default and
needs to be changed in ~/.config/akonadi.

Don't you think we should add a "configuration" section to akonadi explaining
where the config file is and how to use sqlite?
