Thanks for your reply,
I've finally managed to compile kdelibs without krandr support, then 
kdebase by disabling 'krandrtray' and 'iccconfig', both of which seemed 
to require 'krandr' . I did not have to revert Trinity patches.
The resulting TDE 3.5.12 desktop on RHEL5 seems to be running fine so 
far (I've not compiled the further packages yet - but I'll be doing it 
very soon)
