I just built kdemultimedia3 against an old xine-lib and xine-arts and 
then rebuilt having removed the xine-arts dependency and got no 
noticable difference in the package.   I can't remember why I 
originally added the xine-arts dependency but looks like its no longer 
needed.  That will get kdemultimedia3 building which in turn should 
allow the kde3 meta-pkg to build.  Then its just a few stray kde3 
packages (kmplayer-kde3 any others?) that need to be looked at.
