Well, there are only two packages to get KDE up and running (plus 
aRts as well, but that is an audio server), a lib package and a base
apps package. So the functionality for HAL is likely in the base
package (libs doesn't link to the HAL/D-bus libs). From the innards
of KDE you could find out which 'app' of the gazillion in that 
package actually interact with HAL.

I look at it like this.

Install HAL IAW BLFS
Install aRts, KDE libs and KDE base apps (with all depends, of course)

Everything "just works". And works really good. I don't know how KDE
will work with the gnome-mount thingy.
