Did most of that - my version was:
./configure --prefix=/opt/kde3 --with-qt-dir=/opt/qt3.0.2 --with-alsa
etc..etc.. I suppose it's possible that mitshm broke it..

Yup.. got the lot, double checked the configure output to make sure
it found it too..

Me too (although I'm using --with-qt-dir= instead of QTDIR)
I suppose I could install it all over /usr/local (I put it in /opt/kde3 so
that if a deb package turns up I can just do an rm -rf and use the
proper version :-))

Haven't even bothered with kdm yet - been doing startx!

Did something similar - I copied my ~/.kde directory into a test account
and ran it.. the results were slightly better (background didn't flicker,
but it was still grey and configure-background still crashed).
All the other applications worked.. it's just the background/desktop :-(
