Maybe a long shot, but do you also have KDE3.5x installed on this machine?
While KDE4 and KDE3.5x can coexist, you have to make sure that 
/usr/local/kde4/bin is in your path *before* /usr/local/bin.  Otherwise 
you may get to run a "mixed" system with some files coming from kde4 and 
others from 3.5, causing very weird problems (which I faced recently).
