You, or somebody, updates the port. If no ticket has yet been filed  
requesting such an update, filing such a ticket would be a good first

It would be easier to update the existing functional (or presumably at  
least at one time functional) portfile than trying to figure it all  
out again from scratch. The portfile actually couldn't be more  
straightforward, for a kde port. All the complexity is hidden away in  
the kde4 portgroup so you don't need to see it.
