That's what I told Marko too, but we're not talking here about the initial installation. I think that when you already have opencv+qt5+opencv installed, an automatic upgrade to opencv should behave like `port upgrade opencv`. IOW, it should maintain the active variants. Anything else is a waste of time and source of frustration.
