Yeah, David Naylor reported this first, and i have seen this too.

There are too possible causes: 

1. the order of the -L flags, -L/usr/local/lib needs to be last, or at
least behind /usr/local/kde4/lib.  Unfortunately I have not yet found
the offending code in the cmake files. Should be easy fixable for
someone with more cmake knowledge than me.

2. Some of the library versions of KDE3 are higher then their
correspondent in KDE4, e.g. libkdecore.so.6 in KDE3 vs. libkdecore.so.5
in KDE4. This needs a bit more work to fix.
