A lot of the patches are already in Trinity; in fact with a couple of
exceptions I only started to see significant unpatched files in kdebase.

I will see how far I get with incorporating those patches before the
3.5.12 feature freeze...thanks for letting me know about them!

Yes they are. ;-)

Remember "KDE3 is dead, no more feature patches will be accepted"?  That
was occurring for a long time before KDE4 actually came out.

By the way, I think I *might* have fixed your kdebase build problem.  Can
you update kdebase to SVN revision 1172412 or higher and try building
kdebase again?
