+1 to that

Compiled kde 4.2 from ports. Took a longggggggg time, but I have not 
seen any issues yet. There is definitely an improvement. KDE 4.2 seems 
much more responsive! I had only 1 obstacle on the way and that was when 
it came to compiling a dependency (mpeg4ip), whoever maintains this has 
set up the build process so that all warnings are treated as errors. As 
you might expect the build generated a warning and the compilation was 
aborted (using the standard freebsd gcc compiler under 
7.1-stable/amd64). I had to resort to pkg_add for that one. Other than 
that, things have gone quite smoothly.

A big thank you to the team responsible for porting this. It must have 
been a huge task. Very grateful for the time end effort put in, well done!
