Alrighty, updated both xinelib and gcrypt. Tried running xine, got the following:
xine: error while loading shared libraries: libxine.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Not sure why.
Incidentally, I'm quite happy to move this thing over to xfce instead of kde - I'm just not sure what I do to start xfce instead of kde at startup (well, I've got a fair idea, I'm just not certain of which commands will do it right)
Thanks in advance.
