kdebase-3.4.1.tbz2 MISSING FROM PACKAGE CD. ACCIDENT OR DESIGN?

Having such an important KDE package missing from the Gentoo (pre-compiled) package CD is a very large oversight.

When
emerge --usepkg kde cannot find the kdebase-3.4.1.tbz2 package it tries to download the source packages:

pcre-5.0.tar.bz2 -- 456 KB
libidn-0.5.15.tar.gz -- 1,930 KB
kdebase-3.4.1.tar.bz2 -- 21,936 KB

This it does, however, when it attempts the compilation it dies (at least for i686).

On the Gentoo 2005 package CD its equivalent was called kdebase-3.3.2-r1.tbz2 -- 23MB.

Do you think that the CD package producers put together a sloppy package CD, or do they just dislike KDE?
