I agree.  The patches are tentative now.  I'll post to BKO and RB when ready.

Do we need these libraries and their names just need to be fixed or are they not needed on OS X ? I would think at least the first two there are needed, I'll give that a shot (changing the names it's looking for) and put a patch on reviewboard for that today.

That was interesting, but I see René has addressed it on RB.  It's a quirk of
KDE 4 on MacPorts that some libraries are .so and some have to be .dylib.

Cheers, Ian W.
