patch to devel/qt4-assistant*

These two ports need the usual gcc-based patch to allow the building of math/qtiplot on powerpc64.

I do not know enough about these ports to know if qtiplot will be relevant to qt5.

revised patch to include devel/qt4-designer

Three ports need to be patched to enable build of qtiplot, not just two.

  Fix some Qt4 ports to build on powerpc64. All the Qt4 stuff is EOL,
  but let's spread it to more platforms while it's still there. These
  fixes were reported in the context of building math/qtiplot.

Comment 3 Adriaan de Groot freebsd_committer 2018-12-09 20:14:01 UTC
math/qtiplot is Qt4 only; there are newer releases but it is no longer Open Source in any meaningful way. You can only get demo snaps or pre-built customer versions.
