The same thing happened to me. It's probably a bug in the Makefile 
somewhere but I didn't have the time to look this up. After the 'make 
install' command in the /usr/ports/x11/kdebase3/ directory if you try 
something like this:

[EMAIL PROTECTED]: ~] $ ll /usr/local/bin | grep mcopidl
-r-xr-xr-x   1 root  wheel     274456 May  9 17:20 mcopidl

you'll see that the mcopidl file will have a prefix of 
'freebsd-i386-portbld' or something similar which is breaking all the 
other ports who are depending on this file.

Actually, there are a lot of files affected by this so you should 
manually remove the prefix from all of them with the help of a shell 
script in order to fix the problem. Then you can continue normally with 
the ports who depend on kdebase.
