I suspect that it comes from the dependency of kdebase-runtime & not
having the kde base packages installed:

Depends: kdebase-runtime

@Greg: In Gnome when you first install a 'K' program (kcalc, etc) you
need those base kde packages to run kde applications. Afterwards, you'll
only need the standard kde dependencies. So then installing kcalc will
look something like this:

$ sudo apt-get install kcalc
