From what it looks like, both include instructions are historic leftovers 
because at the moment only kio/kfile/ and nepomuk/ sources include Soprano 
headers, but neither kfile/ nor kparts/ do. Or maybe I'm missing something. At 
least it builds again. It would still be good if people who work in this area 
could have a look.

By the way, quite a number of mandatory dependencies could still be converted 
into optional ones. For example, why do I need to install Xscreensaver 
libraries if I just want to develop applications using selected kdelibs
