This can be a network restriction. Here it work fine.

I must to do it (:=))). It still :

1/ to have QtCurves widget style working. In PKG, i packaged it but it
still unavailable on digiKam. I don't know yet why...
2/ compile digiKam and co with debug symbols, to have all info to hack in
case of crash. Last time that i do it, i see a big conflict with debug and
non debug symbols mixed in shared libs. I don't know yet why.
3/ be able to use current implementation from git/master (or a tag
version). Currently i use last Macports version published, so 4.9.0. I know
that 4.10.0 is under review, but it's move slowly on Macports team...

It's always the same. The last 10% to fix are the most long and complex. I
hope to provide a version 6 tomorrow, but i'm not sure.
