I think what you're after here are the Butterworth pass filter (high, low, band, and notch) plugins. I 
don't believe they're accessibile from the commandline, but they are from the UI. You'll need to install 
GSL before building Kst though.

   Wow that's old.  Time to upgrade your Kst. :)

   Could this be done with a plugin?  Recent Kst releases support plugins  
written in C.  You can't quite reference them from the commandline, but they  
should be able to provide this functionality I think.
