Why? Every distro can! You just need to compile the source code. You need qt (from, arts, kdelibs, kdebase. After compiling them you'll have a working KDE. But there are much more packages. Decide which ones you'd like and compile them after.
Note that you need to compile qt with --thread.
All packages are just ./configure;make;make install.

For a normal work 3.0.3 is better. For people who like testing - 3.1beta.
