It seems that I can not log into my account for the bug tracker again so far.

So I try to clarify the following issues by the means of this mailing list.
I stumbled on these surprises during a build try on my openSUSE system.

1. Would it help to mention the kBuild software also as a prerequisite?

2. Config.kmk:
2.1 A version check is performed in this make file.
    Which script should be responsible for setting the variable
    "KMK_REVISION" appropriately?

2.2 More settings are expected to be passed from variables in the
    environment configuration.

2.3 How should the command "include $(PATH_OUT)/DynamicConfig.kmk"
    be resolved?

2.4 Is an out-of-source build approach supported?

3. env.sh:
   Some environment variables are set by this script. Will they only work
   as expected in the corresponding make files if names will be used there
   with a leading "K"?
