Why kdelibs4-dev and XFree86 4.3.0 don't play nice together (was: Re: xlibs-pic)

There is, indeed, a reason - see below.

That's because xlibs-pic is also from 4.2.1-6.

Yeah, that's because kdelibs4-dev depends on XFree86 4.2.1, and won't
work with 4.3, due to the different way we handle PIC (this is
upstream's shiny new way, which I'm assured is wrong, but that's beside
the point). There's no real easy way to get kdelibs4-dev to install with
my packages, unfortunately.

So, this is the canonical answer: it won't install right now,
