If you are referring to the KIO problems I had, I think they were due to wrong
order of installation of 4.12 and 4.13 modules.  They have gone away after
I uninstalled and reinstalled everything back to and including qt4-mac.  Also,
I have my accounting files again --- phew!

I still have an inconsistent MacPorts installation, so I need some time to clean
it up some more, then more time again to prepare a clean kdesrc-build setup
and test the raster patch properly with KDE/4.13 branch and master.  That's the
one-line patch that would go into the kdelibs code, in kdeui/kernel/kapplication.cpp
in the procedure called void KApplicationPrivate::preqapplicationhack().

I would be happy if you decided to hold off till 4.13.2, due for release on 10 June.

If you can conveniently test the raster patch on 4.12.5, great!  But it is rather a
radical patch.  It will affect every KDE application.

Errrmmm, should this also delete the pre-build lines for konqueror in kde4-baseapps/Portfile?
