Is this another of those "kde3 is called kde, kde4 is called kde4" things?

The reason the page - so often - recommends "--without-junit" is it
keeps on breaking builds. If junit(3) has been replaced by junit4 that
would explain things!

If anyone knows and can give me a bit more detail, that'll go on my todo
list :-) but at present I don't have a clue what junit and junit4 are.
