I'll work on it.

I see the Build-Depends: xserver, but I don't understand why it should be
necessary. The only things in the xserver packages are the server binary,
documentation, and the modules used internally by the X server.
Looking at the changelog, I see:
* Adding xserver to build-depends as the configure scripts look for it to
determine pathing and whatnot
So it should be possible to fix it not to require xserver. I'm not really
motivated to do so, as I think there would be very little use for such a
package. I'll file a wishlist bug against kdebase, and see if I can find an
easy way to remove the need for the dependency.
