No I didn't.  I deactivated qt4-mac and all of its dependents I have installed.
Now I have deactivated qt5-mac-devel and re-activated my usual KDE 4
and Qt 4 ports, while I take a rest...

You are at your Mum's, so I did not want to bother you, but…

    1. How do I install qt4-mac +concurrent, starting from [1]?  Trac tickets
        challenge my reading skills… ;-)

    2. IF I install qt4-mac +concurrent, what two values do I use for setting
        $QTDIR to pick up either qt4-mac +concurrent or qt5-mac-devel in my
        non-MacPorts development areas for KDE 4 and KF5/Frameworks?
        I am still not convinced about your installation strategy [2]: in fact I have
        no idea where qt5-mac-devel has been installed.  There seem to be
        bits of it (links to a Library/Frameworks area) in different places under

    3. Will I have to re-build all my normal KDE 4 ports as well as my KDE 4
        development areas, if I install qt4-mac +concurrent?

Cheers, Ian W.

Why cannot we install into something like /optlocal/qt4 and /opt/local/qt5,
or ditto, but one subdir down from /opt/local?
