Nice idea, I've been experimenting with something similar myself. For  
the record I personally think we need to do something like this in the  
default installs, to make sure all KDE4 apps are in the user's path,  
as there are a few things which don't work without KDE4 app in the  
PATH. I know 'O' considers this a bug and not something which should  
not be done. Maybe he is correct but my view is different, they may  
well be bugs, but it is just how things are done on linux, and since  
that is the primary KDE platform we should just do the same to  
minimise problems. Also, I personally find it convenient to be able to  
start applications from the CLI.

b.t.w., your command above has a bug in the path, it should be

 > for i in /Applications/MacPorts/KDE4/*/Contents/MacOS/* ; do ln - 
nsf $i `basename $i` ; done

cheers Chris
