It's weird, but it works fine here with an up-to-date ports tree, but I
build my own packages with Poudriere. I see a new kdelibs4 package was
generated in the cluster a couple of days ago, can you try reinstalling
to see if it was a matter of somehow giflib being originally updated
without triggering a rebuild of the kdelibs4 port caused it (it
shouldn't, I think)? Otherwise, do you get any useful messages on the
terminal when you open FreshPorts with khtml?
