I tend to prefer funtionality over worrying about a default appearance.  
http://www.kde-look.org if "it's ugly" was the only complaint you had.

The ports collection is updated generally the same day the official release is 
made (this is true for both KDE and GNOME, and many many other applications, 
less true for others.  In a very broad generalisation, the bigger and more 
visible the project, the sooner the ports get updated.)  KDE 3.1, for 
example, has been in the ports for a few weeks now.

You have no need to compile from sources to keep current, what you need to do 

a: read the handbook and learn about cvsup and the ports collection
b: install sysutils/portupgrade, read it's man pages thoroughly, and use it to 
keep your system up to date.

The distribution file you downloaded wasn't complete, or was otherwise 
damaged.  Remove it (it'll be in 
/usr/ports/distfiles/gnome-vfs-1.0.5.tar.bz2) and try again.  It'll probably 
work even better if you follow points a and b above.
