Public bug reported:

Affects: kdesdk (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

I tried to run 'apt-get build-dep kdesdk' on a freshly installed Dapper system. I run into the following error:
> $ apt-get build-dep kdesdk
> Reading package lists... Done
> Building dependency tree... Done
> The following packages have unmet dependencies.
> E: Build-dependencies for kdesdk could not be satisfied.

After some investigation, I realized, that 'kdesdk' directly build-
depends on 'libdb4.2-dev', while other build-dependencies like
'libapr0-dev' depend on 'libdb4.3-dev' or 'libdb4.4-dev'.

You probably wanna pump the dependency to 'libdb4.3-dev', allow all
three as alternatives or drop it alltogether.
