several mostly stylistic notes:
1. Makefile header should be reset, all fields (Whom, Date, etc), because this
is going to be a new port. CVS version string should be reset to $FreeBSD:$
2. I think that there should be a run dependency on cdrecord, because k3b
insists so strongly on having it. (Perhaps with alternative choice of
cdrecord-devel and cdrkit).
BTW, it's interesting situation, this page says that cdrecord is a mandatory
dependency and cdrdao is an option one:
But our port requires cdrdao and not mentions cdrecord at all :)
3. upstream now seems to be at version k3b-1.68.0alpha3 and k3b-1.66.0alpha2 is
not available

The port looks great! Thank you!
