in theory, the bundle should work (but you'll get 32 bits, only, of course). 
If it does not, let us know the symptoms. Perhaps we can provide you with 
troubleshooting instructions.

(As a first guess: An often cause of trouble is if some executable from a 
previous installation of KDE are still running. So, in general, if you run 
into trouble, it is a good idea to try after a reboot.)

Hm, there is no such cast on line 92 of the current sources. Probably, the 
emerge script fails to update the sources, somehow. Try
    cd c:\kderoot4\download\svn-src\rkward
    svn up
then try again. Probably this will not fix the issue, but at least it should 
tell us the line number where the problem is really at.
