I downloaded ports.tar.gz August 26, 2004 and am currently building KDE3. I did not run into an error with that particular file, however the graphics/ImageMagick Makefile and distinfo file defined 22.214.171.124 as the version it wanted to download. There is no such version at ImageMagick.org and the KDE3 build would fail at that point. I downloaded 126.96.36.199 and edited the Makefile and distinfo files appropriately, and am now continuing with the KDE3 build.
By the way, building KDE from source is an excrutiatingly long process (more than 5 hours so far) with numerous menus requiring human response to continue, and of course the occasional error as described above. Unless you really need to compile from source (I didn't, I just wanted to try it) use the binary.
