Hi Michael,

I think this is a feature that should really be documented well with the 
increasing availability of precompiled packages and the difficulty of 
compiling everything yourself.

The manuals did mention KDEDIR, but the CLI configuration and KDEDIRS 
environment variable does not seem to be documented and I had not been able 
to figure out how this was done by reading the docs. Although if I looked at 
the source I'd probably see it :) It would be beneficial for users if two of 
you could come up with a small howto which could be appended to the kde user 
manuals as you seem to have the necessary experience.
