That was quite easy in fact. IIRC, I simply deactivated the parts that depend on X11 one way or another, and maybe fixed a no-x11 feature here or there in parts that were supposed to be designed to function without X11 too.

So, if I understand correctly, plasma-workspace has gone from an umbrella package containing a whole bunch of packages, to one depending on a whole number of packages that were extracted from kde-workspace? That's not very clever, or should I say, it wasn't very clever to include packages that shouldn't depend on having a full KDE workspace into it?

Just a thought: I presume that Qt5 still cannot be built against X11 on OS X?
