Nope.  You just need the kdelibs (and maybe kdebase?) port installed in 
order to use KDE apps.  The DE and window manager you use is 
irrelevant.  When you start a KDE app, it will load the libs and 
whatnot that it needs.

Or, you could search around the ports tree for a GNOME download manager 
that would integrate with other GNOME apps a little better.  :)
