There is a separate (at least on gentoo) package libdbusmenu-qt.  The 
gentoo dep for kdelibs-4.6.4 is >=libdbusmenu-qt-0.3.2 , but I have 
0.8.2, far newer (introduced to gentoo in April according to the gentoo 
changelog).  The other available gentoo version is 0.6.2, from Sept. 
2010, so even it's not that old.  The changelog records a large version 
jump between 0.3.5 in June, 2010 and 0.6.2, with 0.3.2 from April of 
2010, removed in Sept.

So if you're on RHEL 6, you may have a reasonable version available, but 
may need to find a newer version to meet the 0.3.2 requirement if you're 
on RHEL 5.x, since 0.3.2 is only a bit over a year old, at least by 
Gentoo introduction time.

Of course as you're probably already aware, RHEL being a binary distro 
often splits the build-time and runtime bits of libraries into separate 
packages (something I've been very happy to forget about on gentoo, where 
it wouldn't make much sense anyway since it's from-source and the build-
time bits therefore necessary if the library is, in any case), so you'll 
likely need both the main library package and the -devel package.

Hope that helps. =:^)
