Just so everyone knows... Andy's advice was right on. Thanks Andy.

KDE3 has build building for almost 2 days now so I'm happy. Well, not happy
that it takes days but happy that it's building now.

kdebuild.txt shows that "kdecore" was found, which is part of kdelibs.

pkg.txt shows no kdelibs.

I'd guess that removal of a previous version of kdelibs didn't succeed.

cd /usr/ports/x11/kdelibs3
make install
(if make install fails, try "make deinstall; make reinstall")

After that, portupgrade _should_ work properly
