In a mail to stable@ which was not replied so far, amarat at li.ru reported on
2014-01-22 that he can't build even cairo (poppler) without WITH_NEW_XORG,
which both are dependecies to KDE4. I have no setup to verify this breakage at
the moment, though should this be true it means we have a broken default
setup on FreeBSD 8, 9 and 10.
