IIRC when you build the plugin-wrapper you get instructions for manually
updating /etc/libmap.conf; maybe you missed that.
There is a common pitfall with FreeBSD that people install a full system
from packages on the CD, and then do a CVSup to the current ports tree.
The ports system then sees their software as out of date.
The best solution is to keep everthing up-to-date with the tree which
means upgrading kernel/world and all your ports. The problem there is
that KDE has gone through several upgrades since 3.1.4 that will
prevent a straightforward portupgrade from working. Your easiest
solution here is to use portupgrade to prefetch packages from
fruitsalad (see freebsd.kde.org) and then do a complete KDE
An alternative is to CVSup your ports tree back to the date on which the
packages were created for the release (or reinstall the ports tree from
the iso) so you are dealing with a self-consistent snapshot.
