There is a new development:
http://packages.qa.debian.org/m/meta-kde/news/20100517T215607Z.html and

Meaning that kde-minimal is dropped (at least for now).
Asking on #debian-kde gave me the following responses:
[01:37] <diederik> Is it likely that kde-minimal will not exist for more then a week? kde-minimal is 
used in the package lists for live-helper
[01:38] <diederik> If it's only gone for a week or so it's probably not worth the temp update, but 
if it's expected to take longer then it makes sense to notify Daniel Baumann
[01:42] <MoDaX> diederik: kde-minimal is a virtual package
[01:42] <MoDaX> s/is/will be/
[01:42] <MoDaX> once it is introduced again
[01:42] <MoDaX> I don't think you want to let apt choose which provide to install
[01:43] <diederik> but right now it doesn't exist, so if someone wants to build a kde LiveCD, that 
will fail, since it doesn't exist _now_
[01:43] <diederik> since not everyone builds a kde livecd each day a temporary disruption seems ok 
(to me)
[01:44] <diederik> so if it's back in a week or so, probably no one will notice and otherwise the 
package list will need to be updated twice
[01:44] <MoDaX> diederik: regardless of kde-minimal fate, switch to live cd to either kde-plasma-
desktop or kde-plasma-netbook (or kde-standard)
[01:45] <MoDaX> I mean if you want live cd build process to be predictable

So if the following section of kde-core is updated from
#if DISTRIBUTION squeeze sid
#if DISTRIBUTION squeeze sid

Then kde builds of live-helper should be OK again.
