Somewhat annoying, but I did this :-)

Did this too (as also pointed out by Roger). It's a shame the 'meta-port'
can't do this bit for itself, too..

It certainly is!
I sat back for a long evening's downloading last night, fetched everything,
tried to make the port, and then discovered that the odd bit of the
compilation failed here and there.. (memory problems, I think, but that's
my shonky cheapo machine for you..)
So, yet another long download just to fetch the packages anyway <shrug> :-(
So, I am now finally running KDE 1.1.2, but I can't seem to save out my
preferred default setup as a theme (only some parts seem to be saved - the
rest flip back to the KDE defaults, boo..), so I'm not sure if I gained
much.. (Only 'Colors' and 'Window Border' are shown as 'available' despite
my having changed a lot of the other settings too..)
Still, I'll have a peek around kde.themes.org, I might find something I
like better there :-)
