Sounds good.

Weird.  The build log you sent me failed in a location that does not even
touch lib*dav.  You might want to ensure that your previous failure
without libcaldav installed wasn't just some kind of fluke.  Definitely
try without the -j4 flag and see what happens.

Yes it does.

Those three are not simple to fix.  With kdebindings I don't understand
the build system well enough to fix it right away.  koffice is because the
wv2 library does not provide a .la file, which you will either have to
figure out why it doesn't, or building koffice may have to wait until the
build system is ported over to CMake.  A third possibility would be if you
can find an option to disable the word import filter that utilizes the wv2

With respect to kdemultimedia, that is what I will look at next.
