I'm not sure how this fact is pertinent for dports.
All it implies is that the base kde4 directory can be /usr/local/ rather 
than /usr/local/kde4 but that wasn't really in question.

We wouldn't want to customize a set of ports like this.  Each 
customization represents extra work for us.  Mostly we are relying on 
FreeBSD to do the right thing.  Usually they do.
