Are there any other masochists that have attempted to install & run KDE3 
out of pkgsrc on alpha?

I'm close to success (it all compiles cleanly, if you remove the apm 
references in ksysguard), but there seems to be an incompatibility with 
dcopserver and NetBSD-alpha.  I recall this problem the last time I tried 
KDE2, some many months ago.  I've tried all the 'standard' fixes gleaned 
from Google (delete /tmp/*, delete ~/.DCOP* ~/.kde...); but dcopserver just 
dies with no meaningful error message ("DCOPserver failed self test!") and 
denies me my bloated KDE goodness.

Anyone else have more luck?
