Right, I should have included this hint, thanks for pointing that out!

FYI, the next time we may have this issue for Qt-only packages is Qt 4.7 
which will be out in a few weeks (shorter release cycle as usual). Things 
like Plasma applets/widgets or KParts can have similar issues with the KDE 
4.4.1 update group which we'll start building soon though (as Plasma and 
KParts are very strict about minimum version checks and enforce even the 
point release), please check the version of kdelibs you're building against 
for those.

I guess we should use a special build tag instead of polluting the default 
buildroot though, and we may well try out this approach with KDE 4.4.1.
