Have a look inside config.log file and browse to the point at which the
configuration process fails. Also, check if you have the required headers
and library files are indeed under the work/.buildlink filesystem.

Are you sure your package uses KDE3? I thought that KDE3 uses qt-3.x 
libraries. I was caught with this kind of problem a couple of times
in which case config.log would show an error due to missing or
malformed headers and definitions.

If all fails, you may send me te pkgsrc files and I will have a look.
