Hmm, I thought the new way (4.3.0) was the correct way with all the libs
being compiled with -fPIC, or is there something more to it? I seem to
recall someone mentioning that upstream decided to finally use -fPIC on
all libraries due to that even i386 couldn't prelink the libs if they
weren't -fPIC (Seems upstream only cares about i386).  While 4.2.1 is
still in sid KDE has to be compiled against xlibs-pic so that it works on
all archs.
