Thanks, that seems to have solved the issue with libkdefx.la.

Now I ran portlint, fixed whitespace issues, but there is one remaining issue:

WARN: Makefile: Consider adding support for a WITHOUT_NLS knob to 
conditionally disable gettext support.

So that's what gettext is for. 

I posted these questions because I'm curious: when I create a port like this 
(I mean only understanding part of what I do) - should I submit it (if it 
looks correct)? What if I can't maintain it because some changes in the 
future require understanding of the code?

Aquamarine is probably not the best port to begin with, for I guess it would 
be better if it was maintained with the rest of beryl (which really requires 
someone with more knowledge) - but still, it was fun trying it :)))
