Hi, I understand about what you're saying, because I tried to recompile
software for an italian project of ITD-CNR of Genoa (Italy).
	I met a very lot of problem because a lot of the programs I tried was
realeased for Kde3 or don't compile correctly even if they were
realeased for Kde2. Another problem is about the program that uses the
SDL library (SDL_ttf) that in many cases requires to put the SDL_ttf.h
file into the "src" directory of the program (see TuxPaint for example).
	So RH 7.2 that caused a lot of problem was upgraded to RH 8.0 but
probably you can resolve the problem upgrading only KDE3, the Qt libs
and the Gcc.
	Best reguards,
Giovanni Caruso
