Will using only dolphin be too much overhead?

Hi Ryan,


I've run:
*sudo port uninstall installed*

*sudo port install kde4-baseapps*

and it end with the following error:

Error: Requested variants "+gtk+gtk3+x11" do not match those the build was
started with: "+gtk+gtk3+quartz+x11".

I'm at a loss quite frankly. I didn't edit any config files or so.
