That's easy ;)

	konsole --help | grep login

but IMHO the wrong way.  Everything that's inherited to child process should
be in .bash_profile (or .profile).  At least as long as you use kdm

	ln -s .bash_profile ~/.xprofile

and login again, there's no need to use --ls.  
FMI about this search for the string xprofile in the list archive of
kde-devel  (or was it kde-core-devel?) on lists.kde.org.  There was a long
thread some days ago.

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
