What optimisations are you hoping to add?

The only way to optimise KDE that I know of are to turn off the "must have
lots of graphical loviness" which used to be an possible in KDE3 but I
haven't seen it in KDE4.

You need to run the 'x-build' script there
run distcc on your x86 machine using commands from the 'rc.local-addition'
script, and then use part of the 'dbuild' script on your ARM machine

So do do a build of an armedslack package all I do is

cd source/a/bash

Obviously you have to have read the instructions first and configured

Have a look through the mail archives for this list as you're not the
first to ask.
