To clarify this, since I'm editing my silly typo below, personally, I think I 
would reinstall in the current situation.  I just meant it's probably not 
urgently in need of doing right this minute just to get KDE running.  There's 
probably a fair amount of cleanup, and the other posters symlinking 
suggestions, that will provide the immediate solution of 'get back up and 
running' for the present.  A reorganisation in the future, is not a bad idea
