Will using only dolphin be too much overhead?

How did you end up with your ports installed with +quartz? Did you edit your variants.conf to include +quartz? Or did you specify +quartz manually at the command line?

This will uninstall all ports, while leaving MacPorts itself installed:

sudo port uninstall installed

kde4-baseapps does not itself have an +x11 variant. See:

$ port variants kde4-baseapps
kde4-baseapps has the variants:
   baloo: Add support for baloo indexing
   debug: Enable debug binaries
   docs: Build documentation

+x11 has always been the MacPorts default, so unless you specify +quartz at the command line or in variants.conf, you'll get +x11, where such a choice exists.
