Thanks for the comments.

Yes, I am using packages from the quarterly branch.
My /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf point to:

url: "pkg+http://pkg.FreeBSD.org/${ABI}/quarterly",

which is default.
I understand the situation, but I'd like to provide
different point of view regarding this issue.

I have the most recent RELEASE OS version and the most recent 
packages version. I addition I also have the most 
recent port tree version (i.e. I did 'portsnap fetch update').

Now I want to use /usr/ports/graphics/qt5-wayland and
realize that it is 'far in the future' and only useful for 
bleeding edge Qt developers who willing to re-compile the whole Qt.

Another option offered to me is to downgrade the _whole_ port 
tree to the quarterly version and moreover - freeze it.

At the same time Qt Wiki:

stating that developers advised to select
QtWayland version which is matched with their 
installed Qt version by doing:
$ git checkout v5.10.0 # replace with your qt version

i.e. QtWayland is obeying to the Qt version already 
installed to the developer's machine.

FreeBSD qtwayland port is missing this functionality.

So how about to change the /usr/ports/graphics/qt5-wayland/Makefile
in a way that FreeBSD ports machinery download qtwayland source
code version which is compatible with the Qt version installed
on the developer's machine?
