Quoted from mk/buildlink3/PKGVIEWS_UG:

You will need to start with a clean system to use pkgviews.  Depoted
packages, a.k.a "pkgviews" packages (packages that are built using
pkgviews) cannot depend on non-depoted packages, a.k.a.  "overwrite"
packages, although the reverse is possible.

Xrender and friends are pkgviews, but not kde3/XFree86...
