I think it's justified because of the dependency on GCC. Let's not
start turning off all the OPTIONS, though. So far, I've been disabling
stuff depending on kdebindings (iirc), and this one sounds good too.
But if you're installing a whole KDE module, you should get - mostly -
what it's supposed to ship.

I install x11/kde4 because i don't want to have hundreds of leaf
ports; others do because they don't want to dig into /usr/ports to
find programs they probably aren't even aware of. I think I agree on a
kde4-lite port, even if it would just install x11/kde4-* ports, so
it's not that useful. But I find extremely wrong trimming down
x11/kde4 and module ports to the minimum: if you're installing the
kde4 package, you should get everything; if you go from ports, then
you can trim it down by hand.
