oh, well /Applications/MacPorts/KDE4 is the standard location for all KDE4 applications!
So that's it is indeed intentionally done by MacPorts.

What I could imagine though is that kactivitymanagerd is perhaps not meant to be build
and run as an app package?! But my knowledge of the KDE software isn't sufficient to
judge that.

However, I met one another case on the KDE/CI system where kconfig_compiler_kf5.app
gets created and installed in the system's bundle directory. But it seems to me that
this isn't an app which should be exposed to the user directly, right? I would expect
this to live in one of these 

Looks like this is a topic for kde-devel?!
