No, many software packages explicitly search for libraries in /opt/local and/or /sw, so if you use MacPorts and Fink together, some software may inadvertently link with packages installed by the wrong package manager. It is not supported (by the MacPorts team, anyway) to have both package managers installed at the same time.

I recommend you file a port request ticket in the issue tracker and Cc the maintainers of the KDE ports.
