Another way is to;

1. mkdir -p /var/lib/lunar/moonbase/zlocal/kde4/base

mount --bind /your/location/of/crater/kde4/base /var/lib/lunar/moonbase/zlocal/kde4/base
then run mount -a

3. add this line to your /etc/fstab;

/your/location/of/crater/kde4/base /var/lib/lunar/moonbase/zlocal/kde4/base 
none bind

Step 3 will obviously automagically mount it on boot

It's worth the spin.
