My apologies for missing your previous post.

I am aware the libpng14 patch no longer is required for qt3 3.3.8.d. I discovered that when I first started builing qt3. :)

I can built the core packages fine I am able to build many of the base packages. So far I can't build kdebindings, pyqt3, pykde3, knetwork, kdevelop, kdewebdev, and kdesdk.

I modified my tqtinterface build script to create the qglobal.h sym link. This seems like a kludge and the link should get fixed in SVN.

Last night I built libical and kdepim. Also libcaldav and libcarddav. The latter never built on 12.2.

I have not performed any kind of installation or usability testing yet. I won't do that until I resolve all build issues.
