Fix permissions in installed Qt5 header files
For the qt5-* ports bsd.qt.mk sets EXTRACT_AFTER_ARGS, and
thereby does not get the normal default value of
passed when extracting. This lead to for example header files
being installed (i.e. copied), with permissions group write
Manually append that to the bsd.qt.mk shenanigans (also do the
same in www/qt5-webchannel, which opts out of the bsd.qt.mk value)

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.(Only the first 15 lines of the commit message are shown above )

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(Only the first 15 lines of the commit message are shown above )

As usual, huge thanks to Tobias Berner (email@example.com) for all his work
on these ports in kde@'s experimental area51 repository. He's the one who

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
I would like to thank Alex Richardson <firstname.lastname@example.org> and Tobias

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
- comms/qt5-serialport: Qt functions to access serial ports, originally
based on work by Fernando Apesteguia. 
- 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,(Only the first 15 lines of the commit message are shown above )

Trivial update from 5.2.0-beta1 to 5.2.1 by me.
