I'm one of the developers of the Gentoo ebuilds for KDE4 (kde overlay)
and while testing this new release our group founds a few issues that we
think are worthwhile to report.
I'm not sure if this is the correct place to report them: if
this is not the case, please excuse me.

Anyway, this is what we identified so far.

*] There are three packages which try to overwrite files already
provided by kdelibs. In particular they are:

1)kdeaddons - It tries to re-install 

It seems that the source of the install command lies in

2)kdenetwork - It tries to re-install

3)kdepim - It tries to re-install

Source of the install command: /kdepim-3.90.1/libkdepim/CMakeLists.txt

*]Ligature fails to build with poppler HEAD (which is needed if one
wants to try all Okular features).
One of the member of our team already reported this problem to some kde
developers who in turn told us that ligature is currently unmaintained.

*]It seems that there's a small mistake in
The last line:

install(CODE " 
exec_program(${CMAKE_CURRENT_BINARY_DIR}/genkdmconf --in

probably needs to be modified to

install(CODE " 
exec_program(${CMAKE_CURRENT_BINARY_DIR}/genkdmconf ARGS --in

In other words, a missing ARGS needs to be added to correctly pass the
arguments to genkdmconf (as specified in the CMake documentation -
