The heart of the package is 'libcw'.  This is a library which, when built,
offers the following basic CW services to a caller program:

  o Morse code character translation tables, and lookup functions
  o Morse code low-level timing calculations
  o A 'sidetone' generation and queueing system, using either the system sound
    card, the console speaker, or both
  o Optional keying control for an external device, say a transmitter, or an
  o CW character and string send routines, tied in with the character lookup
  o CW receive routines, also tied in to the character lookup
  o Adaptive speed tracking of received CW
  o An iambic keyer, with both Curtis 8044 types A and B timing
  o Straight key emulation

Fix Qt5 symbol version scripts to put the catch-all clause first.  When
a symbol matches multiple clauses the last one takes precedence.  If the
catch-all is last it captures everything.  In the case of Qt5 libraries
this caused all symbols to have a Qt_5 label while some should have
Qt_5_PRIVATE_API.  This only affects lld because GNU ld always gives the
catch-all lowest priority.

Older versions of Qt5Webengine exported some memory allocation symbols from
the bundled Chromium.  Version 5.9 stopped exporting these [1] but the
symbols were kept as weak wrappers for the standard allocation functions to
maintain binary compatibility. [2][3]  The problem is that the call to the
standard function in these weak wrappers is only resolved to the standard
function if there's a call to this standard function in other parts of
Qt5Webengine, because only then is there a non-weak symbol that takes
precedence over the weak one.  If there's no such non-weak symbol the call

Update Qt5 to 5.7.1, and unify the Qt4 and Qt5 ports some more

* Update Qt5 to 5.7.1
* Move Qt4 binaries to lib/qt4/bin
* Move Qt5 libraries to lib/qt5/lib
  By moving the libraries we should finally be able to get rid of the inplace
  upgrade bug (see ports bugs 194088, 195105 and 198720):  when Qt5's libraries
  were lying in /usr/local/lib, which would often get added by pkgconfig to the
  linker paths via dependencies, the already installed libraries were linked
  against, instead of the ones that were being built. This forced us to make
  sure, that -L${WRKSRC}/lib was always coming before -L/usr/local/lib in the
  linker flags. With this change this should no longer be the case.
* Rename some ports to match the rest (foo-qtX -> qtX-foo)
* Depend on new port misc/qtchooser [see UPDATING & CHANGES]

There are several new Qt5 ports which all have been created by Marie Loise

Update to 3.5.0

        * bugfix: fixing code that resets tone queue on flushing.  A bug
        was found on FreeBSD: after pressing Ctrl+C, application that
        wanted to stop and delete generator as part of SIGINT handling
        procedure, got stuck in cw_tq_flush_internal() function, waiting
        for tone queue to go idle. This never happened. Resetting all tone
        queue state variables in flush function ensures that the function
        completes and returns, and that client application can exit.

Previously, this was a build-time option, but the primary use of

Since comms/cwdaemon is not a GUI program, it doesn't make sense to enable
the GUI by default, which would mean pkg users couldn't install this
program.  By splitting it into a sub-port, it's now available via pkg
