Seems I need to do more googling. :-/  

The release notes for FC2 say that k3bsetup is not included in the 
distro because it isn't needed.  No mention of why it isn't 
needed ...

The release notes for FC4 don't mention k3bsetup at all.  Currently, 
there is no k3bsetup installed, nor is it included in the rpm.

Thanks for the pointer, though.  I never knew k3bsetup existed.
