This seems to be a very good recipe, thanks. Reading your script, I have 
understood that you have a couple of variables that are not explicited 
here ($HOME and $KDEDIR), does it default to something specific? 
Probably is better to change it to a partition where I have a lot of 
space since /home has just a 1GB left.

That is scaring me, because it means a lot of compile time and a lot of 
troubles to resolve the dependencies. I'm going to start with a simpler 
approach. Many thanks to you for the script and to everybody who 
answered for being so precise and patient.
