[kde-freebsd] Building kde4 with kde3 installed still supported?

When kde4 was new, it was supposed to build with kde3 installed. For a
few versions, this feature was initially broken on almost every kde4
release but usually fixed after a while. Recently, no one seemed to care
anymore. Is that correct?
I think there are still some kde3 dependent ports with no kde4
equivalent. There are definitely some qt3 dependent ports that have not
been ported to qt4, yet.
I have tried to understand how to fix these cmake build, but I have not
really gotten into it. Hence, the only question is what shall I report?
- Is kde4 supposed to build with kde3 present?
- Is kde4 supposed to build with qt3 present but no kde3?
I got used to moving away all headers from qt-3.3.8_12 before
portupgrading any kde4 port, but for the latest kde4 build that was not
For example, the problem I reported in
libkgetcore.so.5.0.1 from net/kdenetwork4 linking against libqgpgme.so.0
Do you care for this kind of report or only if I got a fix ready? (I do
understand that making kde4 build in clean environments is hard enough.)
Anecdotal: During the last big portupgrade, I got so frustrated with
multiple recent gnome related ports not building with security/openssl
installed, kde3 not building due to security/openssl installed, kde4 not
building due to kde3 installed, and so on. Earlier, I tried to
investigate fixes or at least report these problems, but this time I
have not even kept track due to the amount of fiddling involved -- and I
have always been following UPDATING. I guess it is time to learn how to
set up a ports tinderbox and stop worrying...
