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.

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?
