Urgh.  Of course I can, but...

I just want libkpathsea and its header files.

Hehe, it doesn't work (at least if you enable dynamic libraries).  You
always have to run the top-level `configure --enable-tetex-build',
then saying `make' in the kpathsea directory works fine.  This bit of
information I would like to have in the README...
