Don't know about a separate port that provides a download manager (never 
went looking for one), but the kdenetwork port includes KGet which can 
be run either as a separate daemon that watches the KDE clipboard, or 
integrated as part of Konqueror.  The few times I played with it, it 
was nifty.  Reminded me of GetRight back when it was worth using.  Then 
I got a fast Internet connection and haven't had to worry about 
download managers.  :)
