I have started building KDE4 from SVN a month ago and the dependencies haven't 
changed that much.

Well, arts was removed from KDE4. The job is now done using the Phonon 
abstraction layer. At the moment, the only lib you can use for getting sound 
is xine. According to the cmake check, you should use xine-lib-1.1.9, which 
was released a few days ago.

D-BUS is a requirement or better, the Qt4 bindings, which will be only build, 
if Qt4's configure finds D-BUS.

Well, I would say, let's concentrate on the core packages. At the moment KDE 
4.0 is pretty incomplete. Modules like kdepim weren't released...

Fine regards,
