Package: libsnmp-dev
Severity: serious
Justification: Generates FTBFS


at least on kfreebsd-i386, some *.la of yours contains -lkvm:
| kibi at kbsd:~/hack/kdeutils-4.3.4$ grep lkvm -r /usr/lib/*.la
| /usr/lib/libnetsnmpagent.la:dependency_libs=' /usr/lib/libnetsnmp.la -lcrypto -lwrap -lkvm -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/lib/perl/5.10/CORE -lperl -ldl -lm -lpthread -lc -lcrypt'
| /usr/lib/libnetsnmphelpers.la:dependency_libs=' /usr/lib/libnetsnmpagent.la -lwrap -lkvm -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/lib/perl/5.10/CORE -lperl -ldl -lm -lpthread -lc -lcrypt /usr/lib/libnetsnmp.la -lcrypto'
| /usr/lib/libnetsnmpmibs.la:dependency_libs=' /usr/lib/libnetsnmphelpers.la -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/lib/perl/5.10/CORE /usr/lib/libnetsnmpagent.la -lwrap -lkvm -lperl -lm -lpthread -lc -lcrypt /usr/lib/libnetsnmp.la -lcrypto -ldl'
| /usr/lib/libnetsnmptrapd.la:dependency_libs=' /usr/lib/libnetsnmpmibs.la /usr/lib/libnetsnmphelpers.la -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/lib/perl/5.10/CORE /usr/lib/libnetsnmpagent.la -lwrap -lkvm /usr/lib/libnetsnmp.la -lcrypto -lperl -ldl -lm -lpthread -lc -lcrypt'

but libkvm-dev isn't in Depends, which makes at least kdeutils FTBFS,
see #560407 (which I'm Cc-ing to keep Qt/KDE folks posted). You probably
want to check whether that's also the case on Linux, and either add
libkvm-dev unconditionally or on a per-arch fashion.
