I don't know anything about the dbus-0.69 qt bindings. In fact, I was
doing the updates to packages that list HAL as a dependency (did the
D-Bus dependencies yesterday) when you sent this message.

For KDE (and K3b) I've included in the HAL dependency a note saying the
Qt3 bindings are required, and I list the D-Bus bindings page where one
can find the backported Qt4 bindings.

I've also put a note on both packages that this combination has not yet
been tested by the BLFS team. I will be testing it shortly, but wanted
to clarify the book first.

So, to answer your question, I don't have a clue what will work and
what will not work. Any help, advice or critique would be appreciated.
