I haven't responded as I'm not running trunk, but I think the version 
requirements you mention must be the minimum version, not the /only/ 

At least, these are the only versions of redland, rasqal and raptor 
available in the Gentoo tree or the Gentoo/kde overlay, and the overlay 
has kde ebuilds for the 4.4 betas and branch-head, and trunk as well.  
(Tho my tree is about three weeks stale, now, last sync on 2009.1223, as 
I was working on installing to my netbook and didn't want to sync in the 
middle of that, but that's all working now so I'll update in a day or 
two, probably.):

equery list --overlay --portage redland rasqal raptor

So obviously, redland and rasqal can be newer than the versions you are
