[KPhotoAlbum] Compiling recent KPhotoAlbum for Debian Lenny

Hello Matthias,

you might want to try compiling KPA "the old way". Attached script downloads recent versions from svn and compiles them. It grabs also some current KDE stuff, including kdcraw. (I haven't tested on Debian but used to work on old Ubuntu so should work in Lenny also.)

I think the icons KPA uses are mostly standard KDE icons and are thus not shipped with KPA.
