I think, I found some KDE Binaries here:

ftp://ftp7.de.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-9-stable/


Not the META-packages, but some kde stuff (3 and 4).

export these variables in your /etc/profile:

PACKAGESITE=ftp://ftp7.de.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-9-stable/Latest/
PKG_SITES=ftp://ftp7.de.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-9-stable/
export PACKAGESITE PKG_SITES
