Are you using Debian? They have a thoroughly confusing naming scheme for
kdelibs in which the KDE 3 libs are called kdelibs4 (yes, really). In that
case, you can install KDE 3 apps along with "kdelibs4". In this case, some
Debian user on the list can give you more exact instructions.

(On the topic of distributors and their weird ideas, and because I can't
imagine getting anything useful done this morning, why oh *why* did the
gentoo packagers think it was a good idea to create a package called
kde-base, containing everything but the kitchen sink? No chance of
confusion there, eh? Argh. NB I do not use Gentoo, but have spent time
trying to help those who do...)
