Only the binaries change location, plus the cmake files. And those are found dynamically.

No, there's no need to depend on +libsymlinks or an alternative shim port. That variant/port is only there for ports *not* being rebuilt.
If you wish, it's more of a convenience feature for me (and other testers); rebuilding Qt takes long enough as it is, so if one can test things without having to rebuild all of KDE BEFORE ANYTHING WORKS AGAIN that suits me.
Of course I have already started rebuilding dependent ports little by little, but, well, this is being posted from kmail running against a rebuilt kdelibs4 but not-yet-rebuilt KDE PIM.
