New KDE installation

I have a SUSE 8.0 , really a nice distribution but little old, so if i want my system with all the most recent GNU/linux features i have to choose from two options: SUSE 9.0 or download all most recents sources and recompile all. My crazy brain opted for this second option.
So i reinstalled in this order: gcc, kernel, glibc, Xfree, qt and KDE. Everything looks to run well, i really can say that my system performances are increased, but kde has some little problems ( I preput that i still feel a newbie and all this titanic update to my system has been possible after many time passed to make tests and restoring old system backups ...):
1) When i ended to compile the KDE sources i obtained something like "add /usr/local/kde/bin to your PATH" or something like that ... what is my "PATH" ??? How can i add that to my PATH ???
2) This recompiled KDE is really nice but the icons are all "bitten" ... i don't know if there should be something like "alpha blending" or "antialiasing" for icons, but i would like to enable it like before with my old KDE installation by SUSE rpm ... how could i do it???

In an xterm:


export PATH

Your PATH is simply a list of directories which are searched when trying to execute a command.
