Unfortunately, what we need most right now is someone who can help unravel the tangle we've gotten into with respect to Portage and the autotools-dependant packages. Until that happens, or the remaining packages are ported to cmake, we're pretty much at a standstill. Testing is always welcome, though. What Roman and I were able to get working was the equivalent of kdebase-meta, kdeartwork-meta, most of kdegraphics-meta, a few bits of kdenetwork (kmail, kopete) and kdeutils, and some third-party stuff (kaffeine, amarok). Just checking to see if these will emerge for you and reporting back any errors would be some help. > I have tried to make the kde-sunset overlay work a couple of times.

That's when I started looking at the tde overlays. Hmmm. I have kde-sunset's kdelibs working here (with cups 1.5.2-r4), but I don't know when the last time was that I had to re-merge it. Did you pass the error along to the gentoo-desktop ML?
