Hi Mario,

Yes, two I have:

1) better ask such questions in <kde-freebsd at>
2) all my problems with the port x11/kde4 went away after doing (please
   read carefully the man pages before):

# portsnap fetch
# portsnap extract
# portupgrade --batch -a

The 3rd is a long run, depends on what you have installed; but after

# cd /usr/ports/x11/kde4
# make install clean BATCH=yes

runs fine
