Congratulations!  Since I compiled my first from-source program in 1999 (which 
was, I think, PostgreSQL), I understand the mental challenge of making the 
leap to source code.   Plus compiling KDE with GCC on a Mac is no picnic, 
either -- you've initiated yourself into the world of source code by jumping 
in with both feet.   PostgreSQL will be easier ....

Hmmm .... probably they occur only on 3.0.x, which means that we can ignore 
them.  Linux people are used to being told to upgrade.

I don't know; it's been too long since I had default settings.   But I suspect

Yes.   And I'd still like to see the admin interface for translation and run 
it by our team of volunteer translators.

Well .... the stuff has been developing for weeks ... translating all of the 
releases and press kits took a month, I think.   But since our sites have no 
way to save stuff to be posted later, we had to put everything up in a hurry 
last night.

Which lead to some hellish problems with encodings, something to consider for
