I downloaded a small script from freshmeat at the weekend that helps to
build KDE2 from source. It doesn't do much, you have to go download the
source yourself (cvsup is very nice for that :).
Most of the source failed to compile (including Koffice which I was

stable release of their development branch. Good use of Esat Surf No
