 port:qca* : proposed adoption and introduction of Qt5 subports

 The QCA ports have been without maintainer for a bit now, and lack the
 possibility to install for Qt4 and Qt5 concurrently. That possibility is
 essential for the future KF5 ports, so I propose that Marko and I adopt
 this port and introduce the required changes. The ports as defined by
 the current Portfile have seen thorough testing by both of us as well as
 by a few "beta testers" of my KF5 ports.
 I don't think there is any point in maintaining the Qt4 and Qt5 variants.
 The current version also introduces a few changes that are unrelated to
 Qt5/KF5 but aim to simplify dependencies by reducing the number of
 subports. This is open for discussion w.r.t. the Qt4 versions. I don't
 think there is much justification (for use with MacPorts) to build QCA
 as a framework, but this could be reintroduced as a variant.
