Hi Andre,

area51 a development repo, it's not an alternative to official portstree and 
shouldn't be used by regular users. Once ports are in good shape we'll make an 
announcement for testing, and then we'll be happy to see the bug reports.

However if you want to help with porting, join us on #kde-freebsd channel at 
freenode and send patches :)
