Speaking of which, how is kdebase building (or not)?

We are fast approaching a feature freeze.  I think I'll set it at
September 15 at this point; that will leave a few weeks to debug anything
major prior to the 3.5.12 release, which will most likely coincide with
the release of Ubuntu Maverick.  Any debugging information you can give me
in the meantime would be great; I would very much like 3.5.12 to build
properly under a non-Debian distribution.
