I'll give that a try if I can, but pkgsrc building includes the

bit unwieldy. Unless you can think of particular issues, I'd rather
get 4.8.0 working, then adapt the package when 4.8.1 comes out. If
there are minor workarounds necessary, pkgsrc can apply local
patches with no problem.
Whatever 'fetching the source' means. I would consider checking out a
tagged/ named version from a git repo als as 'fetching the source'.
But I have no idea about pkgsrc, so this may all be invalid.
It turns out that the kde git repository has a read-only copy at
github, and github has single URL access to download a zip version of a
repository tag head. https://github.com/KDE/kmymoney is the main
starting point for KMyMoney source and
https://github.com/KDE/kmymoney/tree/4.8 shows the git head of the 4.8
branch, with https://github.com/KDE/kmymoney/archive/4.8.zip giving you
a zip file of the tree at that point. I believe there are also ways to
craft a URL to pull from a github repository at any specified commit,
but that's a bit more involved.
