Indeed I forgot about the ports-freeze. Kind of unhandy that kde-
releases always correlate with ports-freezes. The whole 6months-release 
cycle for FreeBSD seems to always result in a long freeze before a 
release and then everything breaking after it :S

Anyway I will go with area51 as I have done previously. However I seem 
to be on an outdated branch, after an update it stell says
fbsdmain# make -V KDE4_VERSION

How do I get the 4_6-branch? http://freebsd.kde.org seems to be offline…

Thanks for your help,
