Is there an INSTALL file in K3b?  This might provide some information on
the dependencies.

You can also try running:

	ccmake ..

from your build subdirectory.  You should then hit the <T> key to show 
all of the dependencies.  Look through the list to see what is missing.

There is a library: libkcddb.  Do you have it installed?  If you 
installed the binary (RPM), then you also need to install the 
'kdemultimedia-devel' package.
