Konstruct updated for 3.4.2

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 KDevelop or KOffice (for example, "cd apps/office/koffice;make install").

Now installs KDE 3.4.2 and KOffice 1.4.1. Added KSystemLog 0.3.1, KTorrent 1.0 and Tellico 0.13.8. Updated all included other applications.
