In truth, I didn't think to the non-KDE users when I added this depencence.

It seems that only drkonqi needs a library from kdepimlibs, but we know that 
drkonqi is pretty useless since we haven't debug symbols in KDE.

I'll move kdepimlibs to optdepends just to be clear; anyway the others KDE 
module should already depend on it.

namcap output:
kdebase-runtime E: Dependency kdepimlibs detected and not included (libraries 
['lib/libkxmlrpcclient.so.4'] needed in files ['usr/lib/kde4/libexec/drkonqi'])
