Updating KDE to 3.5.2


I realize there's already a topic on this, but this method is way different. The KDE team made a thing called "Konstruct" found here that automatically downloads and installs KDE 3.5.2 from a makefile. So really, all you have to do is cd to konstruct/meta/kde and make install.
