Thanks to you both (Jan and Adriaan) for your help and your work in

It's a pity that KDE4 is unmaintained (upstream and in FreeBSD) because
it does fine for me and many others for many years. From time to time I have to
use KDE5 at work on SUSE Linux workstations and it's rather strange to
use this as a C(K)ommon Desktop Environment, to be honestly. That's why
I see a lot of mails and PR, for example
expressing the same.

Anyway, I will try to get it compiled based on your hint, and if not either return to
a September version or switch to KDE5.

Thanks again.
