Bump PORTREVISION for ports depending on the canonical version of GCC
as defined in Mk/ which has moved from GCC 8.3
to GCC 9.1 under most circumstances now after revision 507371.

This includes ports
 - with USE_GCC=yes or USE_GCC=any,
 - with USES=fortran,
 - using Mk/ which in turn features USES=fortran, and
 - with USES=compiler specifying openmp, nestedfct, c11, c++0x, c++11-lang,
   c++11-lib, c++14-lang, c++17-lang, or gcc-c++11-lib
plus, everything INDEX-11 shows with a dependency on lang/gcc9 now.

Missing run-depends in net-im/quaternion

 - Without the QQC packages, Quaternion runs but doesn't show anything
   in the central chat area. You won't notice that in a KDE Plasma
   environment, where those packages are installed as dependencies of
   other things, but in a bare xmonad environment, it matters.

Update Qt5-based Matrix clients

 - libqmatrixclient is undergoing a name-change, to libQuotient.
   Anticipate that a little.
 - libqmatrixclient installed a ${LOCALBASE}/include/util.h which
   is awfully generic; move the includes into include/Quotient
   (again, in advance of the completion of the renaming).
   Reported by Jan Henrik Sylvester.
 - quaternion just has a minor release with several-times-rerolled
   AppImage support (which isn't relevant for us).
 - spectral has had several more tags done, but no official releases.
   The tags are build-numbers, really, so PORTVERSION=603 means
   build 603, and can be interpreted as until there's
   a real release. This does mean that we'll hit a PORTEPOCH once
   such a release happens, when PORTVERSION drops back down to
   0.0.1 (or whatever).
 - spectral doesn't update to the latest tag (648) because that
   requires an unreleased libQuotient version (not an issue if you
   build from source with git submodules, but problematic in

Update net-im/libqmatrixclient and consumers

New release of libqmatrixclient
with crash fixes when there are expired tokens or abandoned connections.
This helps when clients are stuck showing some dialog and the connection
goes away under water.

New RC of quaternion, using the updated library.
Needs a PORTREVISION bump because I'm using DISTVERSIONSUFFIX. This
will go away when is reached.

Bump spectral so that it picks up the new libqmatrixclient.

New port: net-im/spectral .. a glossy Matrix client.

This is another Qt-based Matrix client, but it is much more focused
on a shiny desktop experience, rather than the more spartan text-like
look of net-im/quaternion.

The source distribution uses git submodules; add only one of them
to GL_*, because we use a standalone net-im/libqmatrixclient .
The PORTVERSION is related to the most-recently-released version,
but it's not particularly accurate: 464 was released four months ago.

net-im/quaternion uses C++17 features (which generate a warning from
clang in C++11 mode, not an error). While here, pet portlint.

Update net-im/libqmatrixclient and net-im/quaternion in tandem.

New release of libqmatrixclient (which breaks API compatibility) and
a beta for quaternion (its only client).

 - (packaging) QtMultimedia (video support) and QtKeychain (for secure storage)
   are now added as dependencies.
 - (user-visible) Many UI improvements.

This could use some work on the BUILD_DEPENDS to make sure that quaternion
is upgraded together with the static library it depends on.

New Matrix IM desktop client and support-library.

Quaternion is a Matrix IM desktop client; Matrix is a "modern" IM
solution, based on federated messaging and optional end-to-end
encryption. The protocol and most implementations are entirely
Open Source.

This commit introduces a support library, net-im/libqmatrixclient,
and one user of that library, net-im/quaternion. The library itself
is used by other Qt-based Matrix IM clients as well but I needed
*one* client, not three of them.

The pkg-descrs are awful short, but there's really not much more
to say than "a desktop Matrix IM client", since that's what it is.
Listing features seems like useless fluff, since those are inherent
in Matrix protocol support (avatars, image previews, long messages,
