If you're talking about including KDE in the LSB, yes - this lack of

Matt ... Do you have any example about this ?

May this lacks be solved? ... Or is a theorical C++ problem without solutions ?

The solution to the C++ problem is for vendors to adopt
soon-to-be-released GCC 3.1 as their system compiler.  The LSB will be
adopting "The V3 multi-vendor standard C++ ABI" that GCC 3.1

If it's just blocking for a short time, no problem. So please ignore my previous messages.

Even once the C++ ABI is included, KDE still has a major blocking
issue in the Qt QPL license.  The LSB is designed to provide a
platform for software developers to use without restriction or
licensing fees for any use whatsoever.  Unfortunately the QPL does not
provide that facility to LSB Applications.
