I fixed all the broken KDE3 packages before the Q4 branch.  All of them 
should build now.  Whether they work or not is a different story, but 
they should.

The reason they are still broken on bulkbuild was they were a casualty 
of the DSO binutils 2.22 issue (esound), and the pkgsrc build box had 
(or still has) some sort of permissions problem that shows up in the 
install stage of some packages (mainly ruby-based ones).
