Please, hold this poll in the user communities (as far as they exist), and not only among the developers.

That is of course if you're doing all this with the requirements of the people who'll end up using your stuff foremost in mind.

I think you'll find that many if not most Mac users don't care one way or another, as long as there's an easy way to install things. You might even find that many Mac users are short on disk space and thus not enthusiastic at all about the idea of having to install every dependency anew for each new dependent app.

And whatever you end up deciding, implement it in such a way that KF5/Mac can still be built and used as on any other *ix/BSD (minus the X11 dependency of course) without having to figure out all kinds of ugly hacks. In other words, MacPorts, Fink, HomeBrew etc. should be supported too.
