although I would dearly love to have a qt5 version that runs on 10.6.8, I
think this effort is DOA. Any objections to closing this? Any 10.6.8
afficionados out there that might take this on and make it work for us?
No, I don't mind closing this - I'd all but forgotten about it (and
apparently I still can't do such housekeeping myself despite what looks
like a trac update).
10.6.8 aficionados can try to install the equivalent port:qt53-kde from my
macstrop repo (github.com/RJVB/macstrop or the stripped-down version at
github.com/mkae/macstrop). I haven't built it myself for ages, and there's
more and more software that requires newer Qt versions anyway.
