This has already been discussed on the list (look for threads about
cupsys and KDE). Its a known dependency problem due to libcupsys2 and
gnutls being upgraded.
kdelibs4 depends on an old version of libcupsys which is no longer
Solution is to nab the libcupsys2 from 'testing' and install that (but I
think you'll have no Gnome unless you use the 'testing' packages) or
recompile kdelibs4 against the latest libcupsys2-dev package.

The problem's been around for about a week now and the maintainers are
well aware of it. Someone mentioned in a previous thread that the
specific maintatiner for kdelibs has been ill which explains why its
taking so long.
