From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0-0.99.11smp i686; Nav)

when compiling KDE apps they can't seem to find the kde libs (yes I know
there's a env. varable pointing to it, and a better written configure
script would fix this, but they really do belong in /opt/kde/libs all of
the kde files belong in /opt/kde)

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  See above

No. Distributions are not supposed to mess with stuff under /opt.
The FHSly correct place is /usr, and any script that insists on a different
location is inherently broken and needs fixing.

KDE 2.x applications are supposed to use the autoconf functions that come with
KDE installations, they do the check correctly.
