Ah, I see :(

KDE applications start necessary services themselves, provided that the 
installation is not broken or, as in your case, incomplete by design.

Hmm, well, one of the system invariants of a KDE system is that there is a 
DCOP server running.

If an application is just exporting a DCOP interface and not using one 
directly or indireclty it might work to have such an option, but I guess 
nobody as ever requested such a feature yet
