I think the easiest way round this (for the moment) is to add

	CONFIGURE_ARGS+=	--enable-greet-lib

to the kdebase2/Makefile

Its libtool enabled which means that it will fake dlopening of the
greeterlib on systems that it thinks can't deal with a shared greeter
lib. In fact its a static binary on my system.

I think you're probably right that this isn't the best solution though.
I have a look...
