As you say, it's a broken dependency (of a dependency actually), so I 
think the mention of KDE in the subject is a bit bogus...

However, I find it weird that it's marked as broken for 5.2+, since I've 
just successfully built it on a clean 5.2R system without a problem. 
Time to look at the bento logs, I guess...

Hmmm, from the log:

it seems really weird.

In my opinion the version check for BROKEN is wrong though, as it builds 
on two different 5.2R boxes for me without problems. One is virginal, 
the other has seen some ports abuse.
