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 5.12.1

Release announcement:

- A change was required to to always pass LOCALBASE to qmake,
  as Qt5 has been installed to a prefix for some time now, there should
  not be any harm in that, with respect to it picking up installed versions
  of itself during build.

Update Qt5 ports to 5.9.3.

This took quite a lot of time because Qt's own build system underwent
several changes in 5.8.0 that took a while to adapt to.

And, of course, qt5-webengine is a behemoth that we need to patch like crazy
due to its bundling of Chromium. In fact, most of the Chromium patches in
qt5-webengine have been imported with no changes from www/chromium@433510
("www/chromium: update to 56.0.2924.87").

New port: accessibility/qt5-speech

Bigger changes to Qt5 ports we had to make:
- Qt now allows using a configure.json file to define configuration options
  and specify configuration checks that can be done when qmake is invoked.
  However, configure.json checks done in a subdirectory only propagates to
  subdirectories, and checks elsewhere will fail if all .pro files are being
  parsed at once (i.e. qmake -recursive), so several ports had to switch to
  USES=qmake:norecursive along with manual additional qmake invocations in
  subdirectories in order to work. It's been mentioned in a few places such
  as Qt's bug tracker that qmake's recursive mode is pretty much deprecated,
  so we might switch to non-recursive mode by default in the future.

- Uses/ Introduce QMAKE_CONFIGURE_ARGS. qmake now accepts
  arbitrary options such as '-foo' and '-no-bar' at the end of the
  command-line. They can be specified in QMAKE_CONFIGURE_ARGS.

- graphics/qt5-wayland: The port can only be built if graphics/mesa-libs is
  built with the WAYLAND option, so a corresponding option (off by default)
  was added to the port.

- misc/qt5-doc: Switch to a pre-built documentation tarball. The existing
  port was not working with Qt 5.9. Instead of trying to fix it, switch to
  what Gentoo does and fetch a tarball that already contains all
  documentation so that we do not have to build anything at all. The
  tarball's name and location in look a bit weird, but it
  seems to work fine.

- www/qt5-webengine: Use binutils from ports, Chromium's GN build system
  generates a that uses ar(1) with the @file syntax that is not
  supported by BSD ar, so we need to use GNU ar from binutils.

- x11-toolkits/qt5-declarative-render2d: This port was merged into the main
  Qt Declarative repository upstream, and into x11-toolkits/qt5-quick in the
  ports tree.

Changes to other ports we had to make:
- biology/ugene: Drop a '#define point "."' that is not present in more
  recent versions of the port. Defining a macro with such a common name
  causes build issues with Qt 5.9, which uses |point| as an argument name in

- cad/qelectrotech: Fix plist with Qt 5.9. Directories are no longer
  installed with `cp -f -R', but rather `qmake install qinstall', which does
  not install


  That's a local file that should not even have been part of the tarball

- chinese/gcin-qt5: Add additional private Qt directories (which should not
  be used in the first place) to get the port to build with Qt 5.9.

- devel/qtcreator: Fix plist with Qt 5.9. Something changed in qdoc and some
  test classes no longer generate documentation files.

- security/keepassx-devel: Import a patch sent upstream almost a year ago to
  fix the build with Qt 5.9.

Thanks to antoine for the exp-run, and tcberner and Laurent Cimon
<> for landing changes in our qt-5.9 branch.

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 5.5.1.

This is the latest stable release at time of writing.

Release announcement:
New features in Qt 5.5:

As usual, huge thanks to Tobias Berner ( for all his work
on these ports in kde@'s experimental area51 repository. He's the one who
started the update and did a lot of the initial work on Qt 5.5. Ralf Nolden
( has contributed the initial version of most of our new Qt5

Also thanks to Yuri Victorovich ( for contributing PR 205805
with his own patch for the 5.5.1 update. Some of his changes there prompted
additional fixes and changes present in the final patch generated from our
experimental repository.

New ports:
- comms/qt5-connectivity, comms/qt5-sensors, devel/qt5-location,
  graphics/qt5-3d, net/qt5-enginio, x11-toolkits/qt5-canvas3d,

General changes in all Qt5 ports:
- All Qt5 ports are now built with -Wl,--as-needed to avoid overlinking,
  which is a problem with qmake-based because the libraries passed to the
  linker come from the modules .pri files and many are not necessary.
- With this change, several ports had their USE_QT5 lines adjusted to
  explicitly include some libraries that were pulled in implicitly, and to
  exclude libraries no longer required with -Wl,--as-needed.

Changes in specific ports:
- devel/qt5: Drop the SQL_PLUGINS and TOOLS options and depend on all Qt5
  ports by default. It makes the Makefile much simpler, and those options
  were already on by default.
- devel/qt5-core: The clang+base libstdc++ workaround has been expanded and
  more C++11 features have been disabled when that combination is used by a
  port (basically, FreeBSD 9 with USES=compiler:c++11-lang). The disabled
  features have explanations for why they were disabled in the patched
  header itself.
- devel/qt5-designer: uiplugins has been split out following a similar
  change upstream. By depending on qt5-uiplugin, qt5-uitools avoids having
  to depend on the big qt5-designer port.
- multimedia/qt5-multimedia: The port now uses GStreamer 1.0 instead of
- net/qt5-network: The port now depends on libproxy for proxy settings.
  Using libproxy allows proxy settings to be read from different sources,
  and also allows .pac files to work with Qt.
- www/qt5-webkit: The port now uses GStreamer 1.0 instead of 0.10.

Only process the `linguist' subdir when configuring.

Use the same patch that is present in other ports like devel/qt5-designer
and graphics/qt5-pixeltool to make sure only the directory we want is
processed, otherwise there is a risk of missing dependency errors on
non-Poudriere builds.
