Well, as René already commented on: There are indeed quite a few settings
for all kinds
of things! One good example is the configuration of the widget style which
affects KDE4
apps on OSX severely - see subsection "Install kde4-workspace and qtcurve"
in our wiki
pages dedicated to KDE issues on MacPorts [1].

Yes, indeed, I did protest back then, but it stayed unheard.

So, I'll do it again, herewith:

     Let's move DrK into a KF5 framework, so that even the
     simplest KF5 apps can make use of its functionality!!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!!!!!
