1. Try without kqemu :) (or at least rebuild it, then disable it if
you continue to run into problems).
2. emulators/qemu is the latest stable, but there are typically a
number of changes floating out in the devel branch
(emulators/qemu-devel) that might be of interest to you:

[root at optimus /store]# grep -r ^PORTVERSION /usr/ports/emulators/qemu*
/usr/ports/emulators/qemu/Makefile:PORTVERSION= 0.9.1
/usr/ports/emulators/qemu-devel/Makefile:PORTVERSION=   0.9.1s.20080620
