FreeBSD ports created a new port, libotr3, of the old version of
libotr for backwards compatibility with other packages:
I do not see how this breakage for the new API-incompatible libotr
4.0.0 is the responsibility of the kdenetwork4 maintainer. That
FreeBSD ports felt the need to create a backwards compatibility port
indicates a patch for the new API is not trivial. Unless this patch
already exists, the build for meta-pkgs/kde4 will remain broken for
quite some time.
