I've seen several other users report this error.  I'm at a loss to explain
what's going on, as I can't reproduce this on my system, which uses the
same toolchain as 1.5.2.  I've just successfully built kdelibs-2.2.2 from
the very latest pkgsrc.  Libxslt (where the error you're reporting above
occurs) has been factored into a separate package, textproc/libxslt.  Could
you please try building libxslt and kdelibs2 from the latest pkgsrc?  If it
still fails for you, please submit a PR with this problem.
