Hi all.
I'm trying to create an application bundle for an application based on
PyQt, using MacPorts to get the dependencies.
I'm having some problems with correctly packaging QtWebEngine: in
particular the application bundle crashes with

dyld: Library not loaded:
  Referenced from:
  Reason: image not found

and using install_name_tool in various ways did not work.

You can find more details (including a minimal example application) at

Can anybody have a look?

Cc to the maintainer of qt5 and the former maintainer of py-pyqt5
(Mark: I know you orphaned the port, I hope you are not annoyed by

Best wishes.
