This is weird -- I compile everything from trunk (ie I don't use the KDE
ports), and I'm always able to compile each module with gmake -j3 here.

Maybe the port is wrong? I can run kdepim just fine with libassuan.0.

Hmm, I hope when 4.6.x migrates to the ports tree kdepim remains at the
4.4.x series until a stable release is made, otherwise we will have

Can you compile at least the pim-related ports with WITH_DEBUG=1, check
if you need to enable some debug information with 'kdebugdialog' and
then run this again? You should get some more useful output.

After that, I recommend filing bug reports on bugs.kde.org -- kdepim 4.6
is still under development, and some time ago the developers said they
needed more migration reports.
