Qt is first and then you need CMake and some other stuff before KDESupport.

Wrong URL.  That is the unmaintained instructions to build TRUNK.



Sorry to report that required package listings:


are out of date except for:


I recommend that you use SVN to check out the 4.4 branch modules:

svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/branches/KDE/4.4/kdelibs
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/branches/KDE/4.4/kdepimlibs
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/branches/KDE/4.4/kdebase

rather than downloading the tarballs.  Then you can update the code by 

svn up

in each directory to get the bug fixes whenever you want.

You also need KDESupport.  Until a tag or branch exists for 4.4, you 
will need to use TRUNK:

svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/kdesupport

Which you need to install first along with some other things which are 
listed in the instructions for LFS.
