Update KDE config

Note to self: remember about kbuildsycoca.

I already knew about updating the desktop and file manager configuration with kfmclient configureDesktop and kfmclient configure, but I never stopped to think that there was a similar command for KDE in general.

But then, a KDevelop error message reminded me of SyCoCa, the KDE System Configuration Cache, and pointed out the kbuildsycoca command. Basically, is just regenerates the configuration cache. This includes updating the start menu (or K menu, or whatever the hell you want to call it). Very handy when you just installed something two seconds ago and want to bring up it up without resorting to the command line.
