KmTail is a KDE4 version of the venerable Ktail program. It has pretty much the same features and allows you to monitor various log files. Note that most files in /var/log are only root-readable so you will have to start KmTail with kdesu for it to be useful.
The KmTail project uses the highly efficient turbotail program instead of GNU tail. This is available from http://www.vanheusden.com/turbotail/turbotail-0.3.tgz or from your distro's repository. The Gentoo ebuild installs it automatically.
