Oh, I see, there is a patch in place for KDE 4.12 regarding kglobalaccel…
Any chance that the different behaviour of kglobalaccel on OSX 10.6.8 and OSX 10.9.2 [1] could due to that?

Oh yes… Both opportunities aren’t great!
For endeavours like that it’s better to have a KDE-build on a virtual machine, or on another real machine.
Otherwise you’ll ask for trouble, since a painless deactivation and activation might be hard to achieve due to dependencies on a lot of other ports.
And on top of all that all your config files from one KDE version would be interfering with those of the other, since they get stored in ~/Library/Preferences/KDE/...
