Okay, so I'm a KDE bigot. :)
But, there is some nice stuff out there for GNOME. Which I run anyway in
KDE. Just need the GNOME libraries. And as it's just part of GNOME I'm
using, and I'm not going to be using it for my desktop, I don't feel I
have to install from source.
So I imagine that if you want to run quanta in GNOME you just need the
libraries. Download the KDELIBS package and install that, then do your
port install of Quanta.
pkg_add -r kdelibs
will fetch the pre-compiled KDE library and install it for you.
