Hi Ian!

Unfortunately, we don't have any plans to support KDE on Gentoo/Alpha.
It's a huge amount of software, and we simply don't have the man-power
to test it, much less fixing tons of bugs like unaligned accesses.

If you'd like to try it, you can use portage's --autounmask flag to
help install KDE. I perhaps could help with an occasional bug in Qt,
but beyond that, it's too much work.

Thanks, and sorry,

Matt
