As far as I know a) and b) work correctly (I specifically hacked in
/usr/local support myself). I think c) works correctly also when you set
KDEDIRS, but there is a problem some people have with /etc/kderc being
set. It causes the install to also see the FHS and /usr/local files,
which annoys them (iirc).
