Hello,

I kinda got my first kde 4.2.1 install working,
as can best be describe as a "random_walk".

So I'm still getting it all straight in my head.

Today upon a routine update to world, I noticed
that kdelibs 4.2.1-r3 want to rebuild, minus
the plasma and webkit flags:

ebuild   R   ] kde-base/kdelibs-4.2.1-r3  USE="3dnow 
acl alsa bzip2 fam jpeg2k mmxnls opengl 
semantic-desktop spell sse sse2 ssl 

Not good methinks, but, I'm looking for somebody
a little better versed in kde 4 to confirm
that I should leave these flags.

If so, my default (favorite place) for this
is adding the flags to make.conf. After all
I manage more than a dozen workstations
and I try to have a much as possible the same
on these machines.

Or should I rebuild kdelibs without these
flags?

Sure I know what the flages do:

plasma:
Build optional plasma widgets that require kde-base/libplasma

webkit:
Enable bindings to QT Webkit
enable WebKit support
Use net-libs/webkit-gtk for rendering.
Enable QT-WebKit rendering support
 Enable the webkit rendering engine
Enables gtk WebKit support
 Use qt-webkit rendering engine for showing url thumbmails and for other things
that needs webbrowser intergration.
 Enable the webkit rendering engine for item rendering
Use net-libs/webkit-gtk for rendering rather than net-libs/xulrunner
 Enable x11-libs/qt-webkit support, for more sophisticated online help display
using webkit's HTML renderer.


But I have too little wisdom with kde4 to discern
best practices. My default goal is to use
sets to have something smilarly to the meta
stuff, but not using meta now, so customizing
my onw sets, or following other Gentooers
that want massive (all) kde applications 
on many workstations, as to have one
semantic to suppport, without "meta".
