Sorry, I can't help you with KDE PIM apps, libs and akonadi.  I have never
been able to get them to work on Apple OS X.  They are on my agenda of
problems to investigate, but quite a way down it.

I have been meaning to ask you, though, how have you built KDE 4.13.3?

MacPorts is currently at KDE 4.12.5.

I am currently building KDE 4.13 libraries (kdelibs) and kde-runtime, using
an extension to kdesrc-build [1], and trying to diagnose and fix bugs, especially
in KCrash and Dr Konqi crash analyser and bug reporter.

There are quite a lot of CMake settings and MacPorts patches you need,
however you build.

Cheers, Ian W.
