Set up a system with debootstrap and chroot into it for building. Do 
installing there when needed for building packages. Basically it comes down 
to the following order:

1. qt-copy
2. arts
3. kdelibs
Then everything else. Only kdeaddons is depending on kdemultimedia-dev and 
libkonq4-dev, which means you need kdemultimedia and kdebase installed.

Beware of installing kdebase packages completely. If you're installing kdm 
with dpkg -i it will start another kdm automatically even inside your chroot 
system which will basically force you to kill it. so just install everything 
from kdebase without kdm to avoid problems.
