Kontact e35 and gcc-4.4 - indexlib problems

Hi all,

has anybody out there successfully rebuilt the Debian packages that the Kolab 
team provides for Debian for another distro with gcc-4.4? I'm currently 
trying to rebuild those packages under Kubuntu 10.04beta2 and I'm running 
into this problem: https://issues.kolab.org/issue4310
In the issue, it is recommended to add "DO_NOT_COMPILE=indexlib" at a suitable 
place - quote: "forget indexlib, you don't need it". For a simple compile 
that's not difficult, but when building the packages I'm not so sure. I am 
wondering about the impact of removing indexlib:
When looking at the package descriptions, I see for libindex0:
"This library provides text indexing and is currently used by KMail to 
implement fast searches in mail bodies."
So, what are the consequences of removing this library - will KMail be slower 
on searches (which would be undesirable, as it is already quite slow)?

Also, if anybody has a hint as to where to add that "DO_NOT_COMPILE" flag 
within the (Debian-)package description/rules files, I'd be grateful - that's 
just a tad more than I've done so far... :-}
