I'd prefer not to use symlinks, since they conflict with the FHS so,

Can I use --prefix=/usr/qt and --prefix=/usr/kde for QT and KDE respectfully 
for sensible and FHS-compliant locations or should I use --prefix=/usr for 

I am currently building cups and will be getting the rest of QT's and KDE3's 
prereq's this weekend. I was hoping to get a patch for the DRI gamma driver 
but it's not ready for use yet.

I realise this is not exactly Debian specific, but I've used Debian for years 
now and know that they are the most FHS-compliant distro going, so I respect 
the opinions of Debian maintainers.

Thanks for all the help. Hopefully this time it will compile in less than a 
week ;-)
