RPM's per se are not the problem.  Any prebuilt binary linked against the 
wrong KDE libs can be a problem, not just ones brought in as RPM.

You can rebuild from the source RPM, though.  With bibletime, in its current 
form, that is non-trivial, as it involves editing the spec file.  I am 
hopefully going to get a more automagic spec file built and working for 
hopefully the next version of Bibletime (I built the 1.2.1 RPMset on the 
Bibletime download area on SourceForge).

I can write a short HOWTO for rebuilding those RPM's, though.  It will be the 
weekend before I get time, however.
