That’s an idea.

Well, I think that dependency is somewhere deep down in kdelibs4.

But I don’t know any details.
As I wrote, I’ve never heard a sound via KDE here, but hydrogen managed
it by building phonon-vlc in a sort of src-build environment like
you did.

I haven’t been in touch with him since then, though.

But you can also ask on the MacPorts-devel list, since perhaps also Nicolas
but sure Michael has come across it.
