As I wrote on a private message, I can not test on macosx since, I don't use it. I've asked for help with this but, haven't got any answer back yet.

I was talking about the former, maybe should have made it clear from the start.

We simply can not replace Qt5 with Qt6, there're are too many packages that have not migrated yet, a lot would break. There're are, though some that provide support for both.

LXQt's next release maybe Qt6 hence, my interest.

To think about, though. Would it be possible to drop Qt4? I honestly don't know, so no need to get angry :)
Coming from a rolling-release model before joining NetBSD, I still tend to use nothing but the latest release of packages on my system. I even build some of them straight from the development branches for personal use.
