BTW, kdebindings will require ruby19 instead of ruby18. With ruby18 module 
RubyQt is unbuildable at current state. 

For mono/c# - mono20 is required. Google/bsd-sharp-tree is suitable for this 
dependency, 'cause ports have only mono10. 

I'll try to settle kdebindings into ${LOCALBASE} and play with RubyQt as soon 
as my test laptop will return from service lab.
