> Mostly, the KDE specific build option is no longer needed. Both KDE and Gnome use Freedesktop
interfaces now. That interface via VCL may need some tweaking, I don't know. When I tried
to build with "--enable-KDE" at least 2 years ago, it was a bit of a chore due to the overhead
of installing the needed KDE development stuff. Better to just concentrate on Freedesktop
and ditch the KDE specific code altogether I think.

Checking for usage of ENABLE_KDE and ENABLE_KDE4 on OpenGrok:
* main/cui/source/options/optgdlg.cxx and
main/filepickers/source/unx/kde4 deal with file pickers.
* main/shell/source/backends/kdebe reads KDE's network proxy settings,
the external mailer, source view font properties, etc.
* main/vcl/unx/kde4 deals with libQt's main loop integration, event
filtering, decides which controls to draw natively, matches fonts with
system fonts, input methods, etc.
* main/toolkit/source/layout/core/dialogbuttonhbox.cxx selects
ordering for dialog buttons

These are generally tasks that go beyond what Freedesktop provides.
