No, we won’t use the env var for the standard MacPorts install. (Same goes surely for HB.)

We need the correct prefix path _hardcoded_, as we don’t want to mess with env vars if avoidable.

Yeah, that’s indeed a problem. Don’t know how Jeremy wants to argument there in his RR...

I believe we should leave the standard path set to the XDG-compliant one (i.e. /usr/local/share)
and on MacPorts replace “/usr/local” against $prefix in the qt5-mac Portfile!

What do you guys think?
