Sorry to answer my own post.  I have found the solution.  First, it was my
fault.  It seems the heimdal port (once again) was causing some problems
with the build.  The file /usr/local/fnmatch.h which was installed by
heimdal was causing the problem.  I deinstalled heimdal (will re-install it
after KDE is up.) and attempted again.  This time, for the first time,
kdesdk3 built AND installed.  Hope that helps someone out there.
