I'm in the process of building 3.5.13.2 for openbsd, by reusing existing 
kde 3.5.10 openbsd packaging.
I currently have QT3, tqtinterface, and arts working. I'm now looking at 
tdelibs.

I've investigated a little and seen that openbsd packages won't build 
out of the box for freebsd or netbsd ... the ports building utility have 
diverged a little.

Also, there is no hal daemon for openbsd and netbsd. Only Freebsd seems 
to have it, but Freebsd does not have KDE3 anymore ... weird ...

There are several existing patches for kde 3.5.10 to build kdelibs in 
openbsd. It looks like the current conditional code in TDE (#ifdef 
openbsd) is outdated.

There are also strange behaviour with cmake generated makefiles. Some 
linker flags that are automatically added in linux are not in openbsd.

I'll upload the result when I'll have a working tdebase .
