The last time I built it - early last week, I think, on 6-STABLE on i386 with 
XOrg 7.2 - it comes up and then KNotify does an endless crash loop, leaving 
ctrl-alt-backspace as the only solution. I don't know if that is indicative. 
It has been a bit quiet around here wrt. building stuff.

With cmake it is *easier* to break stuff up, but a lot depends on the effort 
of the single lonely ports maintainer.

Compile, run, send patch.
Or alternatively, start the ports.

The KDE-FreeBSD IRC channel (#kde-freebsd on freenode / irc.kde.org) could use 
some new blood, too.


PS. Kiruwa: you *do* have an EBN account for building, right?
