Update of bug #40252 (project octave):

                  Status:             In Progress => Postponed              


Follow-up Comment #8:

I've got this partially done, but the hard part of this bug is the
configuration part. When do we decide to use Qt 4 or Qt 5? Automatically
prefer Qt 4 and fall back to Qt 5 if 4 isn't working, or vice versa? Or supply
a user option to pick one or the other?

We will need different sets of pkg-config modules for each (e.g. QtGui vs
Qt5Gui), potentially different sets of helper programs (e.g. moc-qt4, moc-qt5,
or just moc).

Since I think all distributions will continue to have Qt 4 for a long time to
come, I'm going to put this off until after the 4.0 release.
