Karolina, I do appreciate your quick response to my question. Well, I just
tried installing libsdl1.2-dev again, and got the following errors:

Apparently, it is possible to install libsdl1.2-dev concurrently with KDE
3.1RC5, but I haven't figured out the trick. I also looked in the Karolina
KDE 3.1RC5 directories and haven't found a substitute package.
I'm still trying to figure out how to solve this problem. Now that I've
calmed down enough to think, I remember that I had a similar problem when I
installed the KDE 3.0.4 packages from kde.org, and I worked around that
problem by installing an aRts-less version of SDL. What do I need to do to
get some SDL headers on my system? (well, there's always downloading the SDL
tarball and compiling myself...)
/me pines for a Debian equivalent of "rpm --nodeps --force"...
