I don't know about Entropy's package.satisfied as I've never used it, but I recall seeing a discussion about it not working in the SL developers' mailing list
last December (I'm not a developer, but I have a look in there sometimes to see what they're getting up to). It could be that it's been fixed since then; you'll have to hope an expert Entropy user sees this thread and chips in.
Regarding the dependencies in your last message, if the binary packages in question were built with those dependencies then you need them. You mentioned that you are a Gentoo user. Well, in Gentoo if you were to merge app1-6.0.0 that depends on app2-5.0.0 then you can't downgrade app2 to app2-4.0.0 and keep app1-6.0.0 working; you'd need to rebuild app1. SL's Entropy packages are essentially pre-built Gentoo packages, so the same applies in SL. If you want to get rid of those messages then I expect you'd need to use Portage to rebuild kdebase-runtime-meta-4.8.1 and linux-sabayon-3.2-r13.
I don't think you can do what you want without some rebuilding locally. Anyway, as I am no Entropy expert, here's some backgorund reading for you:Entropyentropy in gentooHOWTO: Safely mix Entropy and PortageMasking and Unmasking Packages in EntropyPreventing entropy from downgrading portage packagesAdvantages of combining Portage and Entropy
If you have unneeded video drivers, then just uninstall them. For example, let's say you are using ati-drivers-12.1-r1#2.6.38-sabayon and you also have ati-drivers-12.1-r1#2.6.36-sabayon installed. You'd just uninstall the one you don't use:
