I do that quite often when I want to test the basics. Doing similarly would save you much time as KControl will show most of the modules just by building tdelibs/tdebase. A few modules from the remaining packages will be missing, but you'll know right away whether KControl is broken.

I intend to do likewise with Slackware Current (the testing system for the next official release), which now uses gcc 4.7. With 13.37 I can provide confirmations of what builds and what doesn't. Moreso with Current and gcc 4.7.
> The only kink with this plan is I can build only 13.37 or Current at one time. I only have two machines capable of doing this work and three Slackware systems to test. :( As 13.1 remains my primary system, my primary machine will remain tied to that. Virtual machines are great for usability testing but too slow for this amount of repetitive building.

I rebuilt tdelibs and tdebase again tonight removing all patches. The patches
that were removed were:

#   patch -Np0 -i ${pkgname#*-}-XDG-KDE-TDE.diff
#   patch -Np0 -i ${pkgname#*-}-KDE4-detect.diff
#   patch -Np0 -i ${pkgname#*-}-kdetcompmgr.diff
#   patch -Np0 -i ${pkgname#*-}-recentdocs.diff

#   patch -Np1 -i ${srcdir}/tdebase-feedbackdlg.diff

Upon tde start - knemo popped up like it should -- which was a good indication
that kcontrol would be fixed as well. It was. So the issues is in one of the
experimental patches. We don't want to push those until we can identify which
one... For next week.
