I compile that way all the time and can't seam to find any problems.
I think it's just that way so you don't have to link in the sections
of KDElibs that are only used for corba and some other "new stuff".

The logic is simple.  This is all alpha so you need to leave a way 
out for those who simply want basic KDE.
