~/.kde (or $HOME/.kde) on a Linux system would be where KDE 3
applications and libraries keep your personal config, preferences,
what you were doing last time, etc. It would definitely have the
same ownership as /Users/UserName (or $HOME). And permissions
700 is fine. So you could try changing ownership and see if it works.
With KDE 4 applications, a Linux system would use $HOME/.kde4
for these purposes, but Macports does something quite different and
more in line with OS X usage.
So I wonder if your .kde directory is legit in the Macports world ...
