--- Comment #3 from groot at kde.org ---
You may want to take a look at
http://pkg.freebsd.org/freebsd:10:x86:64/latest/All/ -- that is the listing of
all the latest packages that have been built. There is a gnome3 package there,
and for me -- x86_64, 10.3-RELEASE -- "pkg ins gnome3" offers to download that
package, plus about 2GB of dependencies. Perhaps you have a different
architecture, release, or are using an unexpected mirror?

The KDE package is called "kde", not "kde4", even though the port directory is
"x11/kde4". That is a historical weirdness. You will find that "pkg ins kde"
installs the metaport for KDE4.

The reason the packages are named differently is because of the PORTNAME= line
in their respective ports-Makefiles. x11/gnome3/Makefile calls itself gnome3,
while x11/kde4/Makefile calls itself kde.
