I took a crack at modifying the old portfile, see attached. This is my first attempt to work with Portfiles, so I suggest my work should be checked by someone knowledgeable, perhaps someone familiar with the kde4 portgroup. The executable appears in /Applications/MacPorts/KDE4/, but it would be really useful if it also appeared on the path, so kdiff3 could be invoked by tools like git and bzr.

I don't see the update, and the current version won't install since I have qt4.

$ port search kdiff3 kdiff3 @0.9.92 (devel)

kdiff3 is a file comparing and merging tool.

$ sudo port install kdiff3 ---> Computing dependencies for kdiff3 Error: Unable to execute port: Can't install qt3 because conflicting ports are installed: qt4-mac To report a bug, see <>

I see that 0.9.96 has been released. Couldn't get it to compile with this Portfile.

Ideally, I think that kdiff3 should be compiled without kdelibs4, just using qt4-mac. Couldn't get this to work either.

Has anyone succeeded?

No, having the same problem. Does the conflict mean that kdiff3 has to be ported to qt4-mac or to avoid use of qt4 ports instead? Using diffuse in the meanwhile, though not being the ideal alternative :(
