1)v3.5.13.2 uses the k* packages (kdelibs, kdebase, ....) and requires HAL.

2)v14.0.0 uses the t* packages (tdelibs, tdebase, ....) and does not require HAL on Linux systems. If you are using a 
*bsd system, you still need HAL, that's why v14.0.0 is compatible with HAL.

3) v14.0.0 is usually built on top of tqt3.

4) I usually build sip4-tqt, tqscintilla and python-tqt just before python-trinity. I build tqca-tls just after dbus-1-tqt.

Hope this make things a little more clear :-)
