Get notified when packages are built

A new feature has been added. FreshPorts already tracks package built by the FreeBSD project. This information is displayed on each port page. You can now get an email when FreshPorts notices a new package is available for something on one of your watch lists. However, you must opt into that. Click on Report Subscriptions on the right, and New Package Notification box, and click on Update.

Finally, under Watch Lists, click on ABI Package Subscriptions to select your ABI (e.g. FreeBSD:14:amd64) & package set (latest/quarterly) combination for a given watch list. This is what FreshPorts will look for.

Update PyQt4 to 4.11.4, SIP to 4.17 and QScintilla2 to 2.9.1.

Bring in some long overdue updates, some of which are required for us to
later land the PyQt5 ports.

One big change with this update is that the PyQt4 ports now install their
.sip files into share/py-sip/PyQt4 instead of share/py-sip. This way we do
not end up with directories like share/py-sip/QtCore, which are especially
confusing once PyQt5 lands and starts installing files with the same names.

Other noteworthy items:
- PORTREVISION has been bumped on ports depending on devel/qscintilla2
  because's SOVERSION has changed.
- graphics/seexpr has been converted to USE_PYQT, as the file it used to
  define a build-time dependency on x11-toolkits/py-qt4-gui has moved.

Once again, big thanks to Tobias Berner <> and Guido Falsi
(madpilot@) for their initial work on these ports as part of the effort to
land PyQt5 into the tree (see D2910 in Phabricator for an earlier version of
the PyQt5 patch set).

Update PyQt and its dependencies.

* PyQt4 has been updated to 4.11.3.
* QScintilla has been updated to 2.8.4.
* SIP has been updated to 4.16.5.

This update is much smaller than the previous one, as there has been no
further need for clean ups in the ports infrastructure.

Pretty much the entire patch set has been originally contributed by Tobias
Berner, who sent it to the KDE on FreeBSD mailing list. Thanks a lot!

Update PyQt to 4.11.1, QScintilla to 2.8.3 and SIP to 4.16.2.

... And bump PORTREVISION on ports that depend on devel/qscintilla2 due to
the shlib version change.

This is brought to you by the KDE on FreeBSD team. Besides updating to newer
upstream releases, this commit also contains a lot of under-the-hood changes
to the PyQt/QScintilla/SIP ports. Their Makefiles had accumulated a lot of
cruft over time, so it was time for some summer cleaning:

- General, belated changes:
  * Use OPTIONS helpers wherever possible, stop including
    <> when not necessary, stop checking for
    ${PORT_OPTIONS:MDOCS} and ${PORT_OPTIONS:MEXAMPLES} when not necessary,
    add options such as DOCS and/or DEBUG where they were only checked for.

- QScintilla ports:
  * Drop the API option from py-qt4-qscintilla2. It had been broken ever
    since staging support was added, and its existence does not make much
    sense: QScintilla is a hard dependency regardless of the state of this
    option anyway, they all come from the same tarball and the configuration
    script assumes the .api file will always be installed.

- PyQt ports:
  * The patch shared by all PyQt ports has been trimmed down to
    the minimum. Changes for Qt3 compatibility or for things that are just
    not needed anymore have been removed.

  * Several post-configure targets in the PyQt ports have been removed, as
    they had no effect on the way the ports were built whatsoever.

  * In some cases, instead of calling Python's on `ls *.py
    */*.py */*/*.py` to generate .pyc and .pyo files, we just call, which is made for this kind of task.

  * The patch + sed hack to build py-qt4-dbussupport has been replaced by
    only extracting the dbus/ directory for that port and excluding it from
    all others.

  * Move the bulk of the code in all Makefiles to, like the
    non-Python Qt ports do with and the QT_DIST variable. A large
    portion of all PyQt Makefiles were very similar and contained a lot of
    boilerplate code that can be shared among all of them since they all
    come from the same tarball. now has a PYQT4_DIST variable
    that, when set, automatically sets several common variables and the
    do-configure target for a port. This allows us to considerably reduce
    the size of all the py-qt4-* Makefiles.

  * To make the above possible and also to allow us to use as many OPTIONS
    helpers as possible, the ARGS variable is now called CONFIGURE_ARGS.
    That's what it was used for anyway.
