If the KDE you compile is from Gentoo packages, one should look at the sources of these packages and see what patches are applied to them, compared to the official KDE sources.
As Michael explains, KDEPrint uses the standard KDE selection mechanisms for the ps viewer. If these mechanisms are misconfigured in Gentoo (e.g. .desktop files missing, .desktop files misinstalled, autodetection of "supported" non-kde programs disabled), then you can end up with an empty ps-viewing association list and eventually end up with such a non-functional/weird behavior. Please, if you care, check the patching of the gentoo KDE packages. These problems that you report, didn't seem to appear in other distros.
