There are a bunch of KDE5 versions of packages on wip (and a bunch more
that I'd be happy to do).  The reason I haven't replaced things in
pkgsrc proper with the KDE5 versions is that at this point we don't have
a fully working KDE5 environment (as various components have
dependencies on qt5-qtwebengine or libinput or libudev or other issues)
so I didn't want to break things for anyone who was using KDE4 as an
integrated environment.  Now I don't know if there is anyone still doing
that (I'm not) so maybe we should just go ahead an update what we can.
