As others have mentioned:

- Make sure you have the frameworks branch of the "kactivities" repository 
- Make sure QtWebKit is installed (it sometimes fails when building because it 
  needs ungodly amounts of memory  during linking), but other Qt modules will 
  build after that -- it's easy to miss.

One tip: Use kdesrc-build, at least the kactivities problem would not have 
happened, since kdesrc-build knows the dependencies.
