If this were a portgroup that would at least give you a single place to fix it. Is there value in creating a qmake portgroup? Or does this port already use the qt portgroup, and if so can it be fixed there?

It was however reported by several people that it does not build, and that setting -O0 solves the issue. To note that trying to force compilation with gcc instead of clang does not solve it.
