I don't see any problem with that if you are going to maintain it yourself.

According to that manpage (which is very very old) it requires perl 5.6, but 
doesn't mention any dependencies on KDE at all. I'm not at all familiar with 
kdoc, but providing you can get it to work with the perl 5.8 and the KDE in 
ports, I think you are good to go.

(with his little bit of the kde@ hat on)
