Qt is a cross-platform application and UI framework for developers
using C++ or QML, a CSS/JavaScript-like language.

With Qt, code can be reused efficiently to target multiple platforms
with one code base. The modular C++ class library and developer tools
easily enables developers to create applications for one platform and
easily build and run to deploy on another platform.

Fix qt5-multimedia with GStreamer 1.6.0.

Qt 5 does the following during the build of qt5-multimedia:

--- qt-post-install ---
echo "# define QT_GSTREAMER"  >> /wrkdirs/usr/ports/multimedia/qt5-multimedia/
echo "# define QT_GST_VERSION=1.0"  >> /wrkdirs/usr/ports/multimedia/
echo "# define QT_XVIDEO"  >> /wrkdirs/usr/ports/multimedia/qt5-multimedia/

That's (second line) not how #define works in C of C++

The resulting qconfig-multimedia.h file contains this:

#if !defined(QT_GST_VERSION=1.0) && !defined(QT_NO_GST_VERSION=1.0)
# define QT_GST_VERSION=1.0

This patch filters out the "=1.0" from the define. Bump qt5-multimedia
since the installed header needs to be corrected.

Update Qt5 to 5.4.1.

This is probably the first time our Qt 5 ports are tracking the latest
upstream release :-)

There isn't much to report in this update, thanks to the effort spent in the
5.2->5.3 update: a lot of the work is just small plist and patch updates.
Thankfully, several patches have been upstreamed and are not needed on our
side anymore.

I would like to thank Alex Richardson <> and Tobias
Berner <> for their help with the plist updates and
general testing.

Update Qt5 ports to 5.3.2.

Proudly presented by the KDE on FreeBSD team, with several guest stars.

This update took way longer than initially expected due to us previously
accumulating assumptions and changes to Qt's build system that finally bit
us back with the 5.3 release series, so we had to do a fair amount of

New ports:
- comms/qt5-serialport: Qt functions to access serial ports, originally
                        based on work by Fernando Apesteguia. [1]
- devel/qt5-qdoc: Qt documentation generator, the Qt5 equivalent of
                  devel/qt4-qdoc3. Originally worked on by Tobias Berner.
                  It had already been half-split from devel/qt5-buildtools,

Properly use USES=openal instead of OPENAL_USE.

The latter was removed from the tree in r337472, before we even added
qt5-multimedia to it.
