KOffice is an integrated office suite based on the KDE libraries. KOffice currently includes KWord, KSpread, KPresenter, KChart, Karbon14, Krita, Kexi, KFormula, Kugar, and Kivio. There are no special mail and news clients included in KOffice, because there are KMail and KNode available for KDE anyway. All KOffice components work together, and you can embed every KOffice component into any other KOffice component. This is realized using the KParts object model.
Konstruct is a build system which helps you install KDE releases and applications on your system. It downloads defined source tarballs, checks their integrity, decompresses, patches, configures, builds, and installs them. A complete KDE installation should be as easy as "cd meta/kde; make install". Optionally, you can install additional applications like KOffice or KDevelop (for example, "cd apps/office/koffice; make install").

Just for the record: This user manually added a new
parameter to the scripts and failed to insert a space
before. I pointed him to his error but every new log
he showed me still showed his mistake so no wonder
it (the Java detection) never worked for him.
