With TrueOS Desktop tracking FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT, in August I installed the OS and (below) on 1st September I installed kde4. From ports, I guess.

The most recent updates to TrueOS Desktop involved loss of KDE. I made a handful of brief unsuccessful attempts to re-install from ports, then reverted to the 2016-09-21 09:58 boot environment with which KDE works.

Please:
  • has anyone successfully installed x11/kde4 from ports with the most recent FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT?

Description    :
KDE is a powerful Free Software graphical desktop environment for Linux
and Unix workstations.

This package does not contain anything by itself -- it is a
"meta-port" that depends on other KDE packages.  Its sole purpose is
to require dependencies so users can install this package only and
have all the KDE stuff pulled in by the port/package dependency mechanism.
