Unhappy kde and gnome trouble after upgrade to slack current

After upgrade to slackware-current my KDE and gnome stopped working. Gnome gives and error that fonts could not be loaded and I beleave that to be a pretty simple fix. My main issue I am seeking help for is that KDE is not able to initiate. On attempts to start the kde window manager I get an error that it was unable to contact kdeinit. Running from command line I found that it gives a more descriptive error of relocation error /opt/kde/lib/libDCOP-*** was not found. Several lines indicates errors with this Library file. I checked the installation and located the file in /opt/kde/lib/libDCOP-**** is there. I have removed all kde packages and reinstalled them, but did not work. If anyone has any idea on a fix for this type of issue with kde please let me know. As for the gnome issue if anyone has a quick fix for the font issue with gnome please let me know.
