kdebase-workspace 4.7.2 package requires libxtst which isn't in dependencies array. I've uninstalled libxtst which caused some programs (like kinfocentar) not to start. Also, non KDE programs based on QT lost native KDE look and decorations.

Steps to reproduce: pacman -Rdd libxtst && kinfocenter

Also, when trying to build kde-workspace without libxtst I get this notice:

-- The following OPTIONAL packages could NOT be located on your system.
-- Consider installing them to enable more features from this software.
* libXtst <>
X11 Testing Resource extension library
useful for automated testing of X clients.

and build fails at 6%.

Proposed patch: Add libxtst to the dependency list of kdebase-workspace package.
This task depends upon

You are right, if you aren't using the phonon-vlc backend you don't get libxtst installed. Thanks
