I checked out a LOT of *rc files in .kde and .kde4 directories in my 
home directory in the PCBSD directory and the /usr directory and found 
no attributes that allow me to fix the issue. From plasmarc I can change 
the Offset key and thus adjust where the left side of the panel displays 
on the desktop but I could not adjust it's width attribute using plasmarc.

It is, however, an easy fix if you don't mind using the GUI a little 
bit. Right click on the panel and unlock widgits. You should now see the 
plasma icon on the right-most portion of the KDE panel. Right click the 
icon and select panel settings. You can select More Settings at this 
point and click "maximize panel" or you can adjust at will. When you're 
done playing around you can opt to lock her down and continue to enjoy 
your PC-BSD installation.
