They don't and the dependencies don't say that they do.  Generally they 
only depend on kdelibs and sometimes kdebase (in the kde3 case).
Note that "../../meta-pkgs/kde3/" (and kde4/ are not package 
dependencies, they are common makefile fragments that set things 
appropriately for building kde packages in a pkgsrc context.
