Clean-up After Failed KDE Install

I tried installing KDE on my secondary FreeBSD box and after about 27 hours it had completely filled a 4gb /usr partition and crapped out. I'm not sure why it filled the filesystem but I think it may have been because I did a portinstall rather than a "make install clean." I did a "make clean" for KDE which removed all the extra files. This brought the occupied /usr space down to about 45%.

Now my problem do I convince FBSD that KDE was, at least, partially installed so that I can deinstall KDE and start over? When I try reinstalling KDE I get errors but I'm not at the computer right now and don't remember what they are.

pkg_delete -f kde*
Everything pertaining to KDE will be uninstalled. From there, `cd' to the KDE directory in the ports tree and run the required commands to begin the installation.

And so it did. I had tried the same command without the asterisk which didn't work.
