Sorry for the slightly late response, but I noticed something which bugs me:

To the best of my understanding, this was not possible to apply this approach on the ports I am maintaining, because kbuildsycoca needs to be run at user level, and not system. In the particular case I am thinking about, kdevelop, running it from the Portfile had no effect (there had been some discussion in the mailing list to try to run it from within the Portfile at user level, but with no direct solution). 

It is just that if indeed this can be run within the standard installation process, this would greatly simplify things.
