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.

misc/qtchooser: remove

QtChooser allows you to select your version of Qt among those installed.
However, this tool is no longer supported upstream and will not be
available for Qt6.
By default, our Qt installations are done in
${LOCALBASE}/lib/qt${QT_VERSION} as recommended.

We have added symbolic linking for the main binaries to
${LOCALBASE}/bin with the suffix -qt5.

Update Qt/PySide2 to 5.15.2 / PyQt to 5.15.1 / SIP to 5.4.0
This commit combines several updates.

- Update Qt to 5.12.2
- Update PyQt to 5.15.1
- Since PySide 5.15.1 is broken with Qt 5.15.2, so PySide and Shiboken are also
updated to 5.15.2.
- Update sip to 5.4.0

SIP is a collection of tools  to create Python bindings for C and C++ libraries
and used by PyQt and wxPython. There are some changes with sip5 [1]:
- python 3.5+ is required
- sip drops support of old deprecated methods as sipdistutils & cie.
- this version breaks also PyQt5 extension ABI. SIP files will be installed in
- some ports will use the new pyqtbuilder package with the pyproject.toml setup.
Instead if the project have a, you should use sip-build to build it.
- if a port needs sip, it should also needs pysip. BTW, py-qt5-core requires
pysip, so that should be enough for PyQt packages.

List of ports impacted by this change. Most of the patches have been integrated
or are in the process of being integrated upstream:

- devel/libsavitar
- graphics/py-python-poppler-qt5
- net-im/scudcloud
- net/libarcus
- print/py-frescobaldi
- science/py-veusz
- graphics/qgis and graphics/qgis-ltr
- deskutils/calibre

A special note regarding calibre. New versions require sip>=5, we update it to
the latest version (thanks to madpilot@)

science/scidavis will remove the PyQt binding soon and there is no patch
planned, so we remove the python option (ok makc@)

While here, convert some ports to USE_PYQT (cad/cura, cad/uranium, devel/eric6,

Thanks to tcberner and adridg!

Update Qt5 to 5.15

This is a major upgrade of the Qt libraries [1], [2].

* People that use upgrading mechanisms with incomplete dependency handling
  (portmaster & Co) should make sure to manually remove the existing Qt
  packages to guarantee a safe upgrade. Keep in mind, that Qt does not like if
  you have an incomplete upgrade.

* This version of Qt drops support for OpenSSL 1.0 -- this means that there
  won't be any binary packages for Qt5 provided by the FreeBSD package builders
  for FreeBSD 11.x anymore -- and the same for *all* the ports depending on
  net/qt5-network [3]. If you cannot upgrade to a more recent FreeBSD
  version (12.x, 13.x), you will need to build Qt5 from ports while switching
  to an SSL implementation from ports.

Big thanks are due for
* kai@ for updating webengine (also mikael@)
* Felix Palmen for providing LibreSSL support patches
* adridg@ and lbartoletti@ for helping me fix the fallout

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.
