I don't think that you can compile directly KDE 4.8.4 on Slackware 13.37, without installing at least KDE 4.8.1 which had a 'deps' directory with many updated packages (qt, phonon, soprano, akonadi, ...). I have installed (from source, using Alien Bob's SlackBuilds) KDE 4.8.1, then upgraded to 4.8.2, 4.8.3 and finally to 4.8.4. In the course I had also to update some packages of the base system because the SlackBuilds were for -current.
