That's how packages are stored. The real package in All/ and symlinks in the 
various categories that the package belongs to, plus a symlink in Latest, 
indicating the latest version of said package.

There are packages for kde-3.5.7 in 6-stable. Kde-3.5.7 is the present version 
in ports.
What exactly did you try and how did it fail?
