KDE4 port hangs, archives - handbook no help.

Morning All: 

I've searched the archives and googled and generally applied what I found to 
no good effect.

While installing the kde4 port, I got to libspectre. The libspectre port 
insists that I must have libgs to compile it. After a little research, I 
found that this is a ghostscript library. So I installed the ghostscript-
8.63 port. now, libspectre insists that I have to have libgs version >= 
8.61. I checked /usr/local/lib and found the following: 

ls -l libgs.* 
libgs.so -> libgs.so.8.63 
libgs.so8 -> libgs.so.8.63 

So I'm guessing there's a problem in the configure script, but if there is, 
I can't find it. Then again, maybe I'm just missing something simple. 

Any ideas, anyone?

And a time to every purpose under heaven.
