As someone who re-installs FreeBSD @ 3 times a day ( ALL due to me trashing 
it, no fault of the O/S ), I advise installing the LOT. EVERYTHING. That way, 
you'll get away with three changes ( or it may be two ? ).

 I may be guilty of mis-reading this, but the thought of downloading @ 
compiling anything of any complexity fills me with horror !?!? By the time 
KDE is ready to use, you'd have lost the will to live !
