    25 install <acronym>KDE</acronym> in the standard system prefix: <filename>/usr</filename>.
    26 This option allows the use of KDE without the need for any additional configuration such
    27 as modification of various environment variables or configuration files. Option two is
    28 to install it in a unique prefix such as <filename>/opt/kde</filename> or
    29 <filename>/opt/kde-&kde-version;</filename>. This option allows for easy removal of
    30 the package.</para>

    33 <para>All the <acronym>KDE</acronym> packages are comprised of various components.
    34 The default is to
    35 install most of the components. If specific components are to be eliminated, the
    36 official way is to set the variable <envar>DO_NOT_COMPILE</envar>.
    37 This comes in handy when there are problems compiling a particular
    38 component.</para>
