That's something that will need to be fixed if we are to have another
Debian Alpha release. I wonder whether Gentoo has kde4 running on
but I'm willing to give it another go if
other people with Alpha systems are having better luck than I am.
I would wait a bit. We have just recently compiled some of the kde
base libraries and apps, but there is more to go.
Building much of Gnome and KDE is currently being held up by a broken
subversion install (thus we can't rebuild git, which is a build-
depends on quite a number of packakes) and a broken ghostscript
install (which both doesn't work and also requires libjpeg62 which
conflicts with many packages that are updated to libjpeg8). Until the
maintainers update these two packages we are not going to make much
headway into building new Gnome and KDE packages.
