$ kdesu date
sh: kdesu: not found
$ su

pkg-static: No packages available to install matching 'kdesu' have been
found in the repositories
root at c720-r276659:/usr/home/guru # ls -l /usr/PKGDIR-20141018/kdesu*
ls: No existe correspondencia.

This is with 11-CUR and KDE-4.14.2

But, who needs 'kdesu' is you have a terminal, xterm, ... and 'su'
