Since Edgar doesn't follow the -dev list, I'll mention here that (at
the end of Febrauary through to last Monday night) I was attempting
to test kde4.  Along the way, I got several build problems, as well
as a runtime problem with kmix - Bruce eventually did the testing
and did not see the problems I had experienced.

I finally gave up because I was told that mariadb (default for
akonadi - I failed to persuade it to use sqlite) needed to be
compiled _before_ qt4 : when I tried to rebuild qt4, it failed
(details in the thread).

It seems to me that kde4 (and very likely kde5 too) are problematic
on some machines or with certain combinations of packages.  No idea
