 Replying to [ticket:67082 kaamui]:
 > On a side note, being new to MacPorts, I read the doc but could not find
 a direct answer on how to simply rebuild a port where you just modified
 the Portfile. I tested to edit it and to run `sudo port build
 qt5-qtwebengine`. Is it the right way to do so ?

 Sure, if the Portfile you've modified is in a ports tree that's mentioned
 in your sources.conf file, then you can refer to it by name as you did
 with `sudo port build qt5-qtwebengine`.

 Another option that works whether or not the port is in a known ports tree
 is to`cd` to the directory that contains the Portfile and then run e.g.
 `sudo port install` (without adding a port name). However in this case
 you're dealing with a subport. (qt5-qtwebengine is defined as a subport in
 the qt5 Portfile.) So after you `cd` to the qt5 directory you'd have to
 tell MacPorts which subport to install, e.g. `sudo port install
