> I'm pretty sure upgrading to 4.8.0 will break some of the current qt4-mac dependent ports -- a new point release invariably does.  So, should I bump qt4-mac-devel first to 4.8.0 to let others do testing (etc), or just go straight for the gusto and bump qt4-mac and let the dust settle wherever it does? - MLD

Updating qt4-mac-devel first is a good idea. OTOH, I'm not sure how many people will actually test with that.

If you update qt4-mac-devel, please take the opportunity to set its dist_subdir to qt4-mac so it finally shares its distfiles with the qt4-mac port.
