qt5-qtenginio is obsolete

It is confusing for people like me who use MacPorts at a more casual level than active developers get a message that “qt5-qtenginio” port should be removed and then to have to figure out how to remove it without breaking other ports we have installed, even if they are inactive.

In fact, I still have a remaining broken port message that I don’t know how to solve:
--->  Scanning binaries for linking errors
--->  Found 1 broken file, matching files to ports
--->  Found 1 broken port:
     py27-pyqt5 @5.8.2

Do I just need to delete that one file that appears to be from qt5-qtenginio, but was not removed when I uninstalled it? Or do I need to uninstall and reinstall py27-pyqt5?

    In general yes. However, this message happens for all users that upgrade qt5
    to 5.7.x and requires users to manually uninstall qt5-qtenginio. It would be
    preferable to find an automatic solution for the problem that does not require
    users to manually intervene.
    All our deactivate hacks disable dependencies that are still in use by other
