KDE 3.4.2 for AMD64?

Hi All,

I don't want to sound like an ungrateful bastard, but when the hell can we 
expect AMD64 packages for KDE 3.4.2 on Hoary??  One of the big carrots 
dangled was that Kubuntu will support AMD64....<ok>...so where's the 
packages?  KDE 3.4.0 is a bit buggy  and I've noticed most of these 
irritations are gone on 3.4.2 which is running on my i386 lappy over there 

KDE 3.4.1 is a no-go for me because I need cervisia which is broken in that 
version.  Is there some way to pull the binaries out of Breezy (doubtful 
considering the C/C++ changes happening over there)?  I've googled and 
RTFM'ed and searched the archives, but other than  
Frode Døving's efforts on 3.4.1 for AMD64...the whole thing seems to have 
gone cold.

Ideas (clue bats) anyone?

If anyone has a neat build script[1] that saves me the wrangling normally 
involved in building source packages, I'm happy to donate my AMD64's CPU 
cycles to the cause....but I really don't have the time to spend a week 
fiddling just to get the packages to compile etc (sorry).


[1] I really mean "automated build tool" - that will download the right 
source debs, then step through the build process until the lot is built 
etc. Then I can upload to a public mirror somewhere.
