I've thought about it, but wondered if it would make sense in addition
to specifying what happened in MOVED. I even asked in the ports mailing
list [1] but got no reply, so I went ahead this way and trusted each
tool would do its job.

I've finally fixed this in r372491 -- in this case I didn't want to
write an UPDATING entry on purpose because I consciously want all Qt
ports to be updateable without any additional steps required.
