This is caused by not enough LDFLAGS being passed through to the
configure process.  I've checked in changes to the kdelibs2 and
kdebase2 Makefiles that should fix this.  I'm testing by compiling
kdelibs2 but my machine is a tad slow, so I won't know for a few hours
if the fix is correct.  If you wish to update your pkgsrc and try to
beat my machine at compiling kdelibs2 and reporting your results,
you're welcome to try =)
