Have you really tried to do this ? Autopackage is very unreliable when KDE (or any C++) applications are concerned. It's not a solution, after all - It's band-aid (and poor band-aid). If you want to life in world full of band-aids you can as well switch to Windows.
I never said Autopackage is trying to solve non-existing problem. But it does it so poorly that then end result will be more frustration for users and more problems instead of less.
At least with .deb or .rpm I can find a way to make it work on my Gentoo-based system (did it few times with programs not included in protage). With Autopackage I can not: it installs fine, but in most cases it does not work and there are no hints to show me why.
P.S. Of course I have pretty minimal installation of Gentoo as sacrificial system (everything compiled with gcc 3.4.x, for example): do you really think I'll be comfortable enough to run strange scripts on my work system and/or install lots of unused stuff on my test system ?
