Please cross-reference that to the part where we explain that src_test
is run at user option. You might also want to tidy up the language on
that so that the user option part is explained even if kdebuild is
disabled.

Actually, this one's a bit of a mess, thanks to Portage making a
non-EAPI-controlled order change that was supposed to go in in EAPI 2
but didn't. If you're updating it, please do so to accurately reflect
both orders that can be and are used.
