[kde-linux] Building KDE 4.14.0

I have had some difficulty building some of the KDE-4.14.0 modules because they contained files with one, or more, instances of the string: "#include <Phonon/". Note that this case sensitive.

I am not going to lament because someone made a stupid error. People make mistakes and my cats sometimes help me type. What I am going to lament is the total aversion to quality control that appears to infest KDE.

This is an example -- an excellent example -- of where TQM [Total Quality Management], which basically means that you are responsible for managing your own quality, would have prevented a problem.

Now, I personally would _never_ commit anything before confirming that it would compile and, if needed, do some testing. But, the mention of TQM and quality control gives the KDE developers fits. Well, here is another example of why they need to embrace quality control instead of disrespecting those that advocate it. It takes a lot of hubris to commit something without testing it first.

Too bad that I am no longer a developer or patches to fix the problems would be attached. I am not even going to write up a bug report because I will just get insulted.
