If there is interest, I'd polish up a patch for NetBSD's
libtool package (which would probably mean that the "nb"
number should be bumped up).

Yes and no. For the kmail problem, I did not find a problem
report which seems to describe exactly the problem I had...

With artsd, I'm not sure that it is a problem of KDE itself:
I can usually play sounds via /dev/audio, but artsd always
reports that it cannot find a suitable method (oss, etc.)
or something like that (I don't have access to the machine
at the moment). This is on NetBSD/i386, netbsd-1-5, with
audio0 at auvia0.

I do not expect anyone having a look at my infrequent konqueror
crashes :-) But maybe the drkonqi problem is related? What does
the drkonqi process for exactly?
