I use Gentoo. Honestly most of the dependencies are easy because of the way 
Gentoo works, if I've installed kdelibs and Qt on Gentoo I already have most 
of the dependencies by definition.

Other distributions usually have features to automatically install required 
development packages for a given binary package though, so be sure to look at 
that for your distro.

If people end up finding that useful please let me know so I can link to it 
from the kdesrc-build website. Good luck! :)
