Q: What about a link to http://developer.kde.org/build/konstruct/stable/konstruct-stable.tar.bz2? BTW this is the link listed in Softpedia.

A: The old location for the tarball is no longer current. I'm working on getting a snapshot hosted on a server.

Q: The build on my machine failed with following error:

Is the existence of png.h not being checked earlier?
