misc/qtchooser: do not create unnecessary wrappers

misc/qtchooser provides a wrapper binary bin/qtchooser, that when called with
name foo, will lauch the corresponding binary from

Previously qtchooser would install a list of 30-ish symlinks to itself
Now we switch this around.

qt-dist ports that define QT_BINARIES will now have a @postexec and @postunexec
entry added to their plist to run the shell-script update-qtchooser-wrapper
(installed by qtchooser).

update-qtchooser-wrapper removes all symlinks to bin/qtcreator that have no
corresponding binary in lib/qt*/bin, and readds links that are missing.

[ 20:13 adridg ] Original commit   Revision:521876
521876 Mk/Uses/
Fix up file permissions in Qt ports.

Because sets EXTRACT_AFTER_ARGS, the framework-standard
--no-same-owner and --no-same-permissions aren't added. That means
that the files end up in packages with the permissions from the tarball,
and in particular that official packages contain group-writable (wheel)
includes (C++ headers) and other files.

This was reported in
and fixed in 465911 (18 months ago) but the move from
to Uses/ lost those settings again. Re-add them to
the Uses/ file to improve package security.

(The problem does not seem to be present in my local poudriere builds)

We'll have a new abi on ppc64 soon (ELFv2) which is incompatible with the ELFv1

qt5: fix build on gcc architectures

- the sed call was only replacing one of the %%LOCALBASE%% by ${LOCALBASE},
  due to the missing 'g' flag to the sed call.

- with this change the gcc architectures should be able to build Qt5 again.

devel/qt5: Follow-up to r499101

- Move the GCC related path fix into freebsd-g++/qmake.conf
  Otherwise the inclusion of the GCC path would break clang
  based systems when gcc-${GCC_DEFAULT} was installed.

- This might break GCC architectures again, and if so, that
  will be fixed in a follow up commit.

Update Qt5 to 5.12.1

Release announcement:

- A change was required to to always pass LOCALBASE to qmake,
  as Qt5 has been installed to a prefix for some time now, there should
  not be any harm in that, with respect to it picking up installed versions
  of itself during build.
