Thanks for your effort!

IMO this needs to be part of kdesrc-build, one way or the other, in order to 
be useful.

The setup of kdesrc-build needs to made as *easy* as possible; since that is 
what we tell newcomers to use. As I've said elsewhere already, in a perfect 
world you have to just download a kdesrc-build tarball (or git archive) and 
invoke a wizard-like script which sets up everything in one go.
