libkcm_screensaver is looking for a shared version of libXdpms at build time
find your relevant X source, unpack for Xdpms, adjust X11.tmpl accordingly

build and install, rebuild libkcm_screensaver, and install.

then also chmod 555 /usr/X11R6/bin/*.kss, for some reason they are
installed setuid, but they refuse to run in with that mode (via compiled
in setuid check).

(N.B. XF4 doesn't use Xdpms, so it shouldn't be a problem there).
