Maybe there should be, but I ran into several, mostly linking problems, but not
things I caused myself.  There remains two problems, one I got around, one I
have just done without so far.  The deskutil/strigi won't build, I posted the
error, I'd be glad to post it again if you care, but it's a C++ include thing.
I looked VERY hard at that, couldn't figure out anything (yet, I'm still
looking).  As soon as I figure out cmake well enough, I have another idea to try.

The other one is multimedia/phonon-xine.  Oddly enough, it builds just fine, but
the makefile clains it doesn't recognize the "install" target.  I looked a lonog
time at that makefile, I can't spot anything odd in it, and it only include
bsd.port.mk, so there isn't even anything else to complicate matters (I think)
I have phonon and phonon-gstreamer installed already, just the -xine is missing
(and that's the one that kde wants, of course).  I have checked the entire ports
using cvsup and cvs against my archive, nothing seems out of whack that I can
see (I don't sup the sources, I do the cvs archive.)

The reason I thought that ports folks wanted me to delete my entire kde
installation was the 20090209 UPDATING entry.  I have kde3.5, but I took that
entry to mean all the previous ones, and I wasn't willing to do that  BUT if it
was true, I wanted folks to know I wasn't blaming anyone for me own choice.
Just a matter of what I thought was courtesy.
