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 the Qt5 ports to 5.6.1.

This took longer than expected, but there are quite a few changes to the
existing ports and a few new ones.

General upstream changes:
- Starting with Qt 5.6.2, Qt will fail at configuration time if LibreSSL is
  being used. According to the discussion here:
  The Qt project is not opposed to LibreSSL, but does not want to mix
  support for it into the OpenSSL backend code, especially as they move
  towards supporting OpenSSL 1.1.
  People interested in LibreSSL support are welcome to submit a separate
  backend upstream, but are expected to maintain it. We (kde@) are not
  opposed to carrying some patches authored by others in the future, as long
  as they are not huge and destabilizing.
- When Qt detects the compiler supports C++11, it will pass -std=gnu++11 by
  default (this is an upstream change). You can add "CONFIG -= c++11" to
  your .pro. Qt 5.7 will require C++11.
- www/webkit-qt5: The QtWebKit module is deprecated upstream, and is shipped
  separately as a community release tarball. kde@ does not have an ETA for a
  qt5-webengine port, as it requires a huge effort (and number of patches)
  similar to maintaining www/chromium itself.
- x11-toolkits/qt5-declarative has been deprecated upstream. The last
  release is 5.5.1.

Relevant changes:
- devel/qmake5: The freebsd-clang mkspec has become the default mkspec on
  FreeBSD, replacing the outdated freebsd-g++ one that was moved to
  unsupported/ (it still works though).
- devel/qt5-qdoc: qdoc was moved to qttools upstream, but its data files are
  still in qtbase. The data files are now in the qt5-qdoc-data port.
- misc/qt5-doc: Clean up and stop requiring a compiler and fumbling with
  mkspecs. Instead of running the `configure' script, which requires a
  compiler and adjustments to the mkspecs files and also ends up building a
  new qmake binary, we now leverage USES=qmake to generate all the Makefiles
  from the top-level Getting this to work requires some tricks,
  though, and has a longer explanation of what's being done.
  Switch to USES=gmake to be able to drop MAKE_JOBS_UNSAFE=yes.

New ports:
- comms/qt5-serialbus
- devel/qt5-qdoc-data
- x11-toolkits/qt5-quickcontrols2

Big thanks to Adriaan de Groot (, tcberner@ and Loise Nolden
( for the huge amount of work they put into this
patch. Loise in particular also sent quite a few changes upstream that were
essential for this update to work.

Update Qt5 to 5.4.1.

This is probably the first time our Qt 5 ports are tracking the latest
upstream release :-)

There isn't much to report in this update, thanks to the effort spent in the
5.2->5.3 update: a lot of the work is just small plist and patch updates.
Thankfully, several patches have been upstreamed and are not needed on our
side anymore.

I would like to thank Alex Richardson <> and Tobias
Berner <> for their help with the plist updates and
general testing.

Update Qt5 ports to 5.3.2.

Proudly presented by the KDE on FreeBSD team, with several guest stars.

This update took way longer than initially expected due to us previously
accumulating assumptions and changes to Qt's build system that finally bit
us back with the 5.3 release series, so we had to do a fair amount of

New ports:
- comms/qt5-serialport: Qt functions to access serial ports, originally
                        based on work by Fernando Apesteguia. [1]
- devel/qt5-qdoc: Qt documentation generator, the Qt5 equivalent of
                  devel/qt4-qdoc3. Originally worked on by Tobias Berner.
                  It had already been half-split from devel/qt5-buildtools,
