Maybe the package gtk-qt-engine-kde4 is what you're searching for?
There's something similar for KDE3, too. I just can't find the package
right now :-) BTW Firefox looks a bit "crappy" with gtk-qt-engine-kde4
installed. Dunno if it's a bug or maybe something's set incorrectly
here. It's like just the upper half of buttons or checkboxes are drawn
or they get only drawn when I move the mouse over it.
