Did you try building tcl-8.4.5,1 and then try tk-8.4.5,1. It really 
seems like the kde-3.2 problems are old dependancies that haven't been 
upgraded. You probably have disconnected links in the port database at 
this point. 

I had problems getting 3.2 to install it was much later in the process. 
Portupgrade seemed to do a great job until there were make problems. A 
touch of a couple of kdevelop files worked on fruitsalad but not from 
the east coast to the west coast of the US. 

I did a -pufa upgrade on Saturday and 13 hours later, my entire port 
tree was rebuilt. KDE-3.2 will build cleanly at this point. You are 
just having problems getting to where you can do this.
