The thing is that making a -devel port makes it public, so that it is not really possible to get rid of it afterwards, thus implying to maintain it. There are also -devel ports which are left without updates, but I am not really of fan of this.
I can perfectly understand that, which is why I pointed out that the effort would be too big for you alone.

Yes, either that, or hosting a partial MacPorts tree on bitbucket or github if one prefers so, like me. I have my local MP port tree on bitbucket and also suggested to make use of [1] in order to have a working local tree for Mavericks. We could use [1] for setting up a kdelibs4-devel. What do you think?
Ian, what do you think? Do you prefer github, or should we rather go for a user branch on MacPorts? (I prefer not to mess with MacPorts’ SVN servers and decided to stick to local Mercurial repos, but if you’re not familiar with that I could force myself into that.)
