The above packages are probably marked as automatically installed for
some reason. Did you bulk tag a pile of packages as automatically
installed when you started using aptitude?
You could run:
aptitude install checkinstall kapptemplate kbabel kbugbuster kcachegrind
kdesdk-kfile-plugins kdesdk-misc kdesdk-scripts kompare kuiviewer poxml
umbrello valgrind valgrind-calltree
Or you could manually tag those packages as /not/ being automatically
installed in the interface (with "m" I believe)
You probably also need to check that other packages that you want aren't
set as having been automatically installed too.
