I have found https://trac.macports.org/browser/trunk/dports/kde and I think I can
download patches from there.

I would like to retry the kdesrc-build route, but applying MacPorts patches to my local
git repositories of KDE source and building and installing into non-MacPorts directories.

Does the above trac repository have all the patches I may need?  If so, where can I find the
"post-configure hack" you mention above?  And indeed, what is a "post-configure hack"?

And are there perhaps some global KDE patches somewhere (e.g. for CMake files,
build parameters, package-find paths, library-load paths, etc.)?

Cheers, Ian W.
