Actually, the damaged foot looks to be self-inflicted. His port list 
includes XFree86-libraries and libXext. Since kdelibs couldn't detect 
libXext, he probably installed libXext last. Before he tries anything 
else, he needs to delete the port libXext and reinstall 
XFree86-libraries. He may still have the same problem but I never had 
any problem updating kdelibs from 3.1.4 to 3.2.0 on FreeBSD-4.9-stable.
