For konqueror, all you need is x11/kdebase3 (and its respective dependencies).

For extra features, you might also want misc/konq-plugins (will install as 
kdeaddons-konq-plugins), for some embedded media support you might want to 
install multimedia/kmplayer and for an embedded image viewer with an 
autozooming feature, you might want to install graphics/gwenview.

If you're not sure what you can safely delete (or want to make sure you don't 
miss anything you can delete), do pkg_deinstall -rf arts\* and afterwards 
portinstall kdebase. 

Once you're done with that, you can reduce the number of installed ports 
further by installing sysutils/pkg_cutleaves and use that to find ports which 
aren't in use by any other ports and delete them if you wish.

Kdeinit just wraps around the kioslave processes that Konqueror uses to do the 
actual input/output of data (kio_http, kio_ftp, kio_file, etc). You can turn 
the kdeinit wrapper off by setting KDE_FORK_SLAVES=1 in your environment 
(note that this option has known issues, like - I think however 
that none of them should affect you if all you run is konqueror).
