Fix Qt5 ports

Thanks to antoine@ for figuring out that ${REINPLACE_CMD} does not
handle '\t' in all supported versions -- so replacing the tabs in
the script kept the tabs, but called /usr/bin/ca and /usr/bin/sor
instead. Switched to indenting with spaces instead, so and only
strip leading spaces at that, so the scripts can be slightly
easier to indent / layout. Add comment pointing out how to
easily read the shellscript among all the minifying-magic.

danfe@ pointed to a naming mix-up; because the variables were
used consistently, this had no effect but a weirdly-named temporary
file in ${WRKSRC}. Swapped the names the right way around.

Re-work Qt5 install- and deinstall scripts.

Qt5 packages *together* manage a header file qconfig-modules.h which
`#includes` other headers. A given Qt5 package may get a line in there,
or it might not: that depends on package settings.

On installing a package, add the line (if needed), on deinstall, remove
the line (if it was there). There's a tricky case, too: upgrading
a package that *had* a line, but no longer has one. That behaves like
deinstall. Previously we used @postexec and @postunexec lines, but
these were fragile in their own special way. See the linked PRs for
examples -- or tcberner's comment that his qconfig-modules.h file
*was* a screenful, and is now much shorter (and alphabetical, too!)

An additional complication comes from needing to update qtchooser,

[NEW PORTS] x11-toolkits/qt5-quick3d and x11-toolkits/qt5-quicktimeline

Add QtQuick3D and QtQuick Timeline.

Description from Qt [1]:
Qt Quick 3D provides a high-level API for creating 3D content or UIs based on Qt
Quick. Rather than using an external engine which creates syncing issues, and
additional layers of abstraction, we provide extensions to the existing Qt Quick
scenegraph for spatial content, and a renderer for that extended scenegraph.
When using the Spatial scenegraph it is also be possible to mix Qt Quick 2D
content with 3D content.

QtQuick Timeline
Description from Qt [2]:

The Qt Quick Timeline module enables keyframe-based animations and
parameterization. This module is directly supported by Qt Design Studio and Qt
Quick Designer, with a timeline editor to create keyframe-based animations.

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
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)

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.

- A change was required to to always pass LOCALBASE to qmake,
