It hasn't actually been released upstream, yet. Normally, the kde team
put a mask in the overlay before they add the new ebuilds in preparation,
then simply unmask them on the day of release (or maybe a day later if
they forget or if there are last-minute changes that broke something and
they're left scrambling), but this time, whether due to policy change or
simply overlooking it (it /was/ a long holiday weekend here in the US) I
don't know, they didn't.
There's a bug open. I'm CCed and you can too (I searched on ALL kde 4.5.4
and it was the only one), but if I don't miss my guess, release might be
today anyway, in which case it'll be moot. I'm sort of expecting it
today, Monday, but I'd almost certainly expect it by Wednesday.
