Guessing it's legacy cruft. Seems like for deprecated projects, there
should be just a "final release" port with patches added here and there
for compatibility; "devel" is really in my opinion for actively
in-development projects. That's what I do with qt4-mac, which amazingly
still mostly builds on most MacOS X / macOS systems. My $0.02 worth ...
