That's one, kpackage, juk, kpovmodler, a few kdegames as well.

both.  FYI, -Wl,--as-needed (and 1 or 2 other linker options) get turned 
on with --enable-new-ldflags.

Lots of manual squashing... I've submitting many of these to 
bugzilla.redhat.com, just do a search for submissions from me regarding 
.la files.  (-:

--disable-rpath is mandated by rpmlint and Fedora (Extras) packaging 
--disable-gcc-hidden-visibility, is to be on the safe side.  There's 
still a gcc bug or 2 triggered by kde's use of -fenable-hidden-visiblity.
