Actually, policykit isn't a hard kde4 dependency, it's quite optional. I
don't have it installed here. On Gentoo, of the packages I have
installed, hal and pykde4 have the policykit USE flag, but I have it off,
so they're built without that support. Other packages that have that USE
flag include gnome-system-tools, system-tools-bakcends, gnome-session,
gnome-lirc-properties, gnome-power-manager, hplip, and consolekit
(another optional dependency, as should be obvious given I'm running
kde4, since I mention it in the other, not the installed, packages).
Yet another kde4 optional is eggdbus, which I don't believe I'd ever
heard of until now.
dbus is mandatory AFAIK, as it has now replaced kde3's dcop as the kde
system message bus -- dbus being the standard where dcop was kde-
specific. Hal, I'm honestly not sure. I have the hal USE flag set, but
I don't remember if it was a required kde dependency or if I just liked
the idea of X input hotplugging, etc. Supporting those are dbus-glib and
hal-info, both of which I have installed as well.
