Maybe you shouldn't bother with building KTorrent from source, then.

Isn't there a binary package available?

Start small -- take a ready-made binary package and rebuild it.  Mandriva is a RPM-based distribution; you should be able to use SRPM packages provided by them.

http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Development/Howto/RPM could be a good start.
