seems you're not getting what's the deal

otr.4 is from libotr3, the Makefile is ok

there is now libotr3 and libotr4, the former is needed by kde4

it is not an upgrade of libotr even if it is described as so, it is a
new additional version

libotr4 unfortunately assumed the ports dir from the older port, it
could have been much more stressless and smarter making it
security/libotr4 but they did it the spaghetti way ...

so now the old port and actual kde dependency is in security/libotr3

in order to make it work you first need to run like explained in UPDATE

portugrade -o security/libotr3 security/libotr

now you can upgrade kdenetwork and eventually any other port which
depends on libotr3
