I just reinstalled unstable and got similar problems.
kdelibs4 depends of libcupsys2 and gnome/cupsys/a whole load more depend
on libcupsys2-gnutls10 (or something similar) which conflict.
This also has the effect that kdelibs-dev cannot be installed as it
ends up depending on both conflicting libraries...
The bug was reported a few days ago so should get fixed soon, in the
meantime I compiled kdelibs myself using the latest libcupsys-dev.
(on another note, gnome is broken for installation at the moment, but I
think that's due to it being upgraded to 2.6 and not all the packages
being uploaded yet)
Its a bit of a pain, but hey, its in unstable and I'm not paying for it
so I can't really complain can I :-)
