dselect holding back KDE packages - WHY?

For some reason, dselect and apt-get are refusing to upgrade my KDE packages 
to 3.0.3.  When I try to upgrade one of the packages, I get the following 

# apt-get upgrade kdelibs4
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following packages have been kept back
  amor cervisia eyesapplet fifteenapplet kaphorism karbon kbabel kbabel-dev
  kbugbuster kchart kdeartwork-screensaver kdeartwork-style
  kdeartwork-theme-window keduca kformula kgeo kicker-applets kivio klettres
  kmessedwords kmoon kmtrace kodo koffice-dev koffice-libs kompare kontour
  koshell kpresenter kspread kspy kstars kteatime ktouch ktux kugar kvoctrain
  kweather kword kworldclock
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 40  not upgraded.

So how to I tell apt-get to "Shut up and do it!"?  Where's the apt-get 
equivalent of rpm --force?  I really want these upgrades, and apt-get's 
stubbornness is frustrating.
