accessibility/qt5-speech: add options SPEECHD and FLITE
Previously we only assumed to build the speechd backend. If however flite was
installed, it would be picked up and could leed to it failing due to a missing
dependency to qt5-multimedia required by said backend.
With this we add options to deterministically toggle which of the backends to

Update the Qt5 ports to 5.10.1.
The work was done by tcberner and myself, with thanks to antoine for the
Not a lot to report compared to other Qt5 updates:
* net/qt5-network is still broken with LibreSSL. I said this in a commit
message ages ago but it bears repeating: upstream is open to adding support
for LibreSSL, but someone needs to step up to maintain it upstream, otherwise
things will continue to be broken all the time.
* www/qt5-webengine is a huge monster that is terrible to update, just like
www/chromium itself is. We (kde@) have decided to keep using the 5.9 series
for the time being, as it should be compatible with the rest of Qt anyway. It
was updated to 5.9.5, the latest 5.9 release at the time of writing.

Update Qt5 ports to 5.9.3.
This took quite a lot of time because Qt's own build system underwent
several changes in 5.8.0 that took a while to adapt to.
And, of course, qt5-webengine is a behemoth that we need to patch like crazy
due to its bundling of Chromium. In fact, most of the Chromium patches in
qt5-webengine have been imported with no changes from www/chromium@433510
("www/chromium: update to 56.0.2924.87").
New port: accessibility/qt5-speech
Bigger changes to Qt5 ports we had to make:
- Qt now allows using a configure.json file to define configuration options
and specify configuration checks that can be done when qmake is invoked.
However, configure.json checks done in a subdirectory only propagates to
subdirectories, and checks elsewhere will fail if all .pro files are being
parsed at once (i.e. qmake -recursive), so several ports had to switch to
USES=qmake:norecursive along with manual additional qmake invocations in
subdirectories in order to work. It's been mentioned in a few places such
as Qt's bug tracker that qmake's recursive mode is pretty much deprecated,
so we might switch to non-recursive mode by default in the future.
- Uses/qmake.mk: Introduce QMAKE_CONFIGURE_ARGS. qmake now accepts
arbitrary options such as '-foo' and '-no-bar' at the end of the
command-line. They can be specified in QMAKE_CONFIGURE_ARGS.
- graphics/qt5-wayland: The port can only be built if graphics/mesa-libs is
built with the WAYLAND option, so a corresponding option (off by default)
was added to the port.
- misc/qt5-doc: Switch to a pre-built documentation tarball. The existing
port was not working with Qt 5.9. Instead of trying to fix it, switch to
what Gentoo does and fetch a tarball that already contains all
documentation so that we do not have to build anything at all. The
tarball's name and location in download.qt.io look a bit weird, but it
seems to work fine.
- www/qt5-webengine: Use binutils from ports, Chromium's GN build system
generates a build.ninja that uses ar(1) with the @file syntax that is not
supported by BSD ar, so we need to use GNU ar from binutils.
- x11-toolkits/qt5-declarative-render2d: This port was merged into the main
Qt Declarative repository upstream, and into x11-toolkits/qt5-quick in the
Changes to other ports we had to make:
- biology/ugene: Drop a '#define point "."' that is not present in more
recent versions of the port. Defining a macro with such a common name
causes build issues with Qt 5.9, which uses |point| as an argument name in
- cad/qelectrotech: Fix plist with Qt 5.9. Directories are no longer
installed with `cp -f -R', but rather `qmake install qinstall', which does
That's a local file that should not even have been part of the tarball
- chinese/gcin-qt5: Add additional private Qt directories (which should not
be used in the first place) to get the port to build with Qt 5.9.
- devel/qtcreator: Fix plist with Qt 5.9. Something changed in qdoc and some
test classes no longer generate documentation files.
- security/keepassx-devel: Import a patch sent upstream almost a year ago to
fix the build with Qt 5.9.
Thanks to antoine for the exp-run, and tcberner and Laurent Cimon
<email@example.com> for landing changes in our qt-5.9 branch.
