Ian installed qt5-mac-devel in conjection with the standard qt4-mac port. I've always thought that'd be possible though not ideal because it's not feasible then to install qtchooser (not without conceiving a variant for it at least).

I plan to do a bit more work on qt5-mac-devel; possibly move the KDE variant to a subport, but also move the web-related components that weren't already in Qt 4.8 *) to a subport. I hope to benefit from Bradley's VM for fine-tuning that.
*) that's just the 1st criterium for splitting off parts that came to mind.

Yes, and with a bit of luck that will be mostly a clone of the KDE4 portgroup!

Actually, the hardest work was the part I didn't do, but my computer ... hours of churning through C++ code ;)
