Ports Collection no longer offers Qt4 support, make the wording Qt version-

Massage misc/qtchooser

- expand documentation of the tool used to manage the links; while we
  have only Qt5 in the tree the whole thing is rather moot, it's good
  to tidy up before Qt6 shows up on the horizon.
- update the documentation in the Makefile to reflect the current
  state of Uses/

I've bumped PORTREVISION because the package contents will change
with the updated script, but there's no functional change at all.

SVN hooks have forced me to remove svn:executable from the
script file, but this doesn't change the resulting permissions
on the installed executable and script.

misc/qtchooser: do not create unnecessary wrappers

misc/qtchooser provides a wrapper binary bin/qtchooser, that when called with
name foo, will lauch the corresponding binary from

Previously qtchooser would install a list of 30-ish symlinks to itself
Now we switch this around.

qt-dist ports that define QT_BINARIES will now have a @postexec and @postunexec
entry added to their plist to run the shell-script update-qtchooser-wrapper
(installed by qtchooser).

update-qtchooser-wrapper removes all symlinks to bin/qtcreator that have no
corresponding binary in lib/qt*/bin, and readds links that are missing.

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.
