 I noticed this port is not complete/ok.
 I'm working on revising this port; there appears to be breakage with the 
 kcmgtk menu entry. auto* tools gotta love and hate them. You'll get a menu 
 entry in the KDE control center modules menu with the (new) GTK Styles and 
 Fonts menu. If clicked you'll notice it doesn't work as expected (that is 
 with full cooperation of the gtk-qt-engine port).
 Please dont commit ATM, fixing is needed. Delete pkg-plist. Please give me 
 some time to solve this. There's easy ways out but in the longer term that's 
 not going to help. I've acted too fast to submit this port update.
 Note: it works as-is for general gtk-theme --> qt theme widget conversion and 
 such, but the gtk styles/fonts chooser menu doesn't work.
 If I get really stuck I'll contact the author. But it looks to be porting 
 problems (or what peculiar things we do with gtk/gnome and kde apps and 
 So, for now, please close this PR if deemed appropriate or (better) leave open 
 or leave it in feedback stage. Please don't commit as-is.
