I did a recompile of Qt, arts, kdelibs and kdebase and the rest of my stuff 
still works fine. I think kdebase and kdelibs still need updating, at least 
kdelibs because of the designer and plugin stuff - but I don't see any 
specifics there yet why you need to do that. 

To be on the safe side I would rebuild from the branch *after* we changed the 
Qt packages. We're still fiddling out some minor issues like that the static 
development files for libdesigner and co are shredded useless through 
dh_strip :-)

Please wait with rebuild after Martin has fixed the issues and uploaded his qt 
packages to incoming. Calc, we need to still fix the dh-make template in 
kdelibs to make sense for third party packages by shipping a correct 
debiandirs file in it.

You may want to switch to the above mentioned debiandirs file or update the 
ones from the in your third party apps packages, but it should even work 
without doing that.
