This is a bug. We've had a similar situation with a different qt5-* port
where the maintainer added an upgrade path to deal with it
automatically. I mentioned it in the ticket back then that we'd need the
same thing for qt5-qtenginio, but it seems to have gotten lost.

Marcus: Can we add a deactivate hack for qt5-qtenginio, possibly for the
qt5 port?
