[kde-freebsd] kde4-workspace on 9-STABLE

In 9-STABLE, the system compiler is still gcc 4.2. The code in kde4-workspace 
(area51/trunk, for KDE 4.11) and kwin in particular does some stuff that gcc 
4.2 does not understand. The attached patch switches the port of use gcc 4.7. 
This version of gcc is already installed for kactivities, which is a (build) 
dependency of kde4-workspace, so it adds no new dependencies.

There's no upstream (KDE) policy regarding compiler versions, but gcc 4.2 just 
isn't tested, and KDE5 will have a "recent gcc or clang" as a requirement.
