The qt5 ports don't seem to install with the portupgrade tools
("portupgrade" and "portinstall)", although "make deinstall" and "make
reinstall" from the port directory works as expected. Portupgrade works on
most/all other ports.

That's with the current ports tree, current version of portupgrade

the ports semantics changed a while back. This has been true across
multiple 11.x releases, and I've tested against multiple FreeBSD 11.2

Example output from "portupgrade" for graphics/qt5-svg:

Happens on many/all of the qt5 ports, not just this one. Probably a simple
