I'm not sure if this is the right spot to ask, because the question really is
very Gentoo-specific, and not KDE-specific.
But I'll try to give you a little advice.
The use of environment variables like ACCEPT_KEYWORDS is deprecated and
discouraged. That's what the files in /etc/portage are for.
In the case of KDE 3.4, add the following to the file /etc/portage/package.keywords:
## KDE 3.4
Then do a emerge --sync, and then a emerge -a kde
That should do the trick.

You can (and should) just type "emerge -aC =kde-3.3" in that case. Merging and
unmerging by directory/direct path to packages *can* work, but more often than
not, it does something unpredictable.
