Nope.  Not me.

Dunno.  But I think it might be more appropriate to have a stripped-down
or "derailed" KWallet, which would simply switch to QtKeyChain and
OS X Keychain, wherever it was invoked, bypassing the usual KDE code.
In a different context, I have done something like this in [1].

Also see https://github.com/frankosterfeld/qtkeychain (bottom of page).

One thing bothers me.  QtKeyChain is not part of Qt 4 and 5.  Are there
other instances where MacPorts is using Qt libraries from third parties?

Cheers, Ian W.

P.S. I am not volunteering for this one… :-)
