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.

Mark QT4 ports/functionality for removal on 2019-03-15

While here, chase some KDE4 ports and functionality, these are scheduled for
removal on 2018-12-31. Change the default option/flavor to QT5 where applicable
or use alternative toolkits like GTK.

Fix qt4 ports on armv6.

Due to a misspelling in GCC [1] (probably) the check for the ARMv6KZ platform
used ARM_ARCH_6ZK instead of ARM_ARCH_6KZ.

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
<>. Thanks again.

Update the Qt4 ports to 4.8.7.

According to upstream, this is the last planned Qt4 release.
A list of changes since 4.8.6 can be found here:

Porting notes and changes:
- Remove several patches that have been upstreamed.
- Make Uses/ pass the contents of LIBS to the qmake environment. [1]
- Repurpose devel/qt4/files/extrapatch-src-corelib-global-qglobal.h now the
  original patch is part of the release (curiously enough, the original
  patch was never actually used, as the ?= assignment in r362837 after
  r362770 was never possible).

  This works around the way compiler support for C++11 features is detected
  in Qt 4.8.7: while it originally only uses the compiler to determine if
  something is supported or not, the initializer lists feature also depends
  on the C++ standard library being used. It's a problem in FreeBSD 9.x,
  where USES=compiler:c++0x or USES=compiler:c++11-lang means we will use
  clang to build a port but use libstdc++ from base (GCC 4.2). The latter
  obviously does not support initializer lists, and the build fails because
  Qt tries to include headers that do not exist (<initializer_list>).

  Since detecting libstdc++'s version is not trivial (we need to include a
  non-lightweight header like cstdio and then check for __GLIBCXX__), we
  just enable Q_COMPILER_INITIALIZER_LISTS support only when libc++ is used
  (there should be no reason for someone to be using clang with GCC 4.8's
  libstdc++, for example).

  x11/kdelibs4's FindQt4.cmake had to include a backported change from the
  upstream FindQt4.cmake in CMake itself to use a C++ compiler to detect
  flags like Q_WS_X11, otherwise the inclusion of <ciso646> in qglobal.h
  makes the build fail.

This patch contains changes by me, makc@ and alonso@.

In preparation for Qt 5 ports:

- Add support for out-of-source builds
- Add support for Qt 5 ports
- Respect WITH_DEBUG

- Massive rework for Qt 5 ports
- Remove '-phonon' from global configure args, thus allow qt4-designer and
  qt4-qtconfig to be built without Phonon support [1]

- Improve mkspecs for gcc (mainly sync with linux version) and clang

- Convert to USES=iconv
- Remove ancient patch

- Remove reference to WRKSRC from installed pkgconfig files [2]
- Don't build Qt Designer plugin for Phonon from outdated Qt sources.
  Separate port for plugin will be committed later

devel/qt4-assistant-adp, devel/qt4-libqtassistantclient:
- Convert to USES=qmake

Clean up Qt4 ports:
- Update comments
- Update description; use common description
- Consistently use QT_INCDIR, QT_LIBDIR, etc.
- Use options helpers
- Convert to new LIB_DEPENDS syntax
- Update DESKTOP_ENTRIES to avoid conflicts with Qt 5 ports
- Rename/move several ports for unification with Qt 5 ports

Update Qt to 4.8.5 and Qt Creator to 2.8.0.

Proudly brought to you by the KDE on FreeBSD team, with commits by makc@,
Schaich Alonso and yours truly.

Besides the tons of upstream fixes, we have mkspecs for GCC 4.9 and clang33
(from ports), staging support in the Makefiles and dependency fixes related
to pkg-config.

Many thanks to the people who helped test the ports using our area51
repository, and also to the people who provided patches and bug reports via
