I forgot to add.
It's necessary for the kmozilla binary to see two environment variables
as well.
First of all, it needs to find its libraries and also it needs to know
the location of the Mozilla environment it should use. Something like
this should work:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/xulrunner-
export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=/usr/lib/xulrunner-
(and open a site and choose kmozilla as the viewer)

Maybe a kcontrol panel could be added at some point that allows choosing
the Mozilla environment to use.
