Hi Konstantin,

sorry for your bad experienced, but I think it would have been much easier. Assuming you are on a Debian based distribution the steps should just be:

* sudo apt build-dep kmail
* kdesrc-build kde-pim

I personally don't have all dependencies build from source, but just the one I develop. Everything else I do through distro packages. I would never try to build something like webengine from source, that's just a mess.

Cheers
