Hello, Rahul :)
I hate to bother you more than you can imagine, but can I assume that
the code that I need to remove is in the "configure" file that is in
the root of each KDE module?  If it is, then how can I get changes that
I make to stick, since running "unsermake -f Makefile.cvs" will
overwrite the "configure" script.
Of course, I may be wrong about where this version check is located.
Please feel free to correct me if necessary.  But I must also confess,
that I can't find exactly what I need to find.  I've tried a few
things, with no success.

The real frustrating part about this is as follows:

I must interpret that to mean that as soon as they find out the Fedora
Core's gcc 4 is fixed, that they will remove the blacklist.

Anyway, any help you can give my will be greatly appreciated :)
Also, as always I am willing to learn.
