I'm using the tarballs.

Noted, i'll look into updating the build process to account for this.

I've tried manually adding $(LIB_QT) to the kappfinder/Makefile in this 

kappfinder_LDADD = $(LIB_KDEUI) $(LIB_KIO) $(LIB_QT)

But it doesn't help, so i'm guessing that's not enough (I'm a bit of a 
novice with make files). Am I better of just switching to cmake with the 
expectation that it will cure the problem, or is it worth trying to trace
