Okay, I didn't have the KDE development packages.  I discovered this the 
cheesy way.  I went to Debian, found the packages, and then used apt-get to 
get them.  Since they installed, I knew I hadn't had them.  (It's cheesy 
because you don't have to look around your system for them.)

These packages eliminated the prefix problem.  But I ran into another error 
telling me I didn't have libkipi.  So I downloaded libkipi and compiled it.  
That was the first thing I've compiled in my life, believe it or not. 

 With libkipi, I was finally able to compile the kipi-plugins with one 
exception.  There was one I couldn't compile because, according to the error 
message, I didn't have lighoto2.  I actually do have that installed, but was 
really only interested in the plugin that allows me to e-mail pictures from 
Digikam.  Therefore, I have been as successful as I set out to be.

The compiling took a long time.  The program comes already compiled on SuSE.  
Debian seems to be a distro for people with time on their hands.  But I have 
to admit I've learned more using Debian than I have using Red Hat, Mandrake 
or SuSE.  But it sure is nice to be able to install stuff with apt.

Thanks again Bill and Henry.
