- Which parts of KDE you build and in what order are important. You should
build in this order
4. anything else but kdeaddons
5. build / install kdeaddons last.

- While building KDE, give a prefix to the configure script. e.g.
./configure --prefix=/opt/kde <other options>
After configure, run make and then as root run make install [if installing
in a non-root directory, you can install as user]
Now, you have built KDE and it is ready for use. But there is something more
you need to do.
1. In your .bashrc include KDEDIR=<location of your KDE>
2. Include $KDEDIR/bin in your path *before* the bin path of the earlier
3. Additionally you can also export QTDIR as where the installation of QT is
on your system.
Now, if you login and choose KDE as your preferred desktop, you should be
able to run kde 3.1.2. If you do not want the Redhat default login manager,
you can switch to kdm ... I have done that :-)
