I think KDE 4 apps are still installed without docs in MacPorts because of an intermittent
build crash that could never get diagnosed and fixed.

You can see KDE 5 user guides at docs.kde.org. These are mostly much the same as the
KDE 4 docs or only slightly advanced. Otherwise you can build with +docs in MacPorts
(which is from source rather than a binary package), but it takes a long time and drags in
doco for all the many dependencies of KDE 4 apps.
