Ouch. That might be a show-stopper for me. I use kmail a *lot*.

Out of curiosity, what's the issue with Qt5WebEngine? It doesn't do 
anything silly like depend on systemd does it?

Subject: Re: getting started with KF5

Hi there

Unfortunately kdepim-16.* requires Qt5WebEngine. So it cannot be built at
moment on FreeBSD.
On the other hand kdepim-4* conflicts with components installed by the
Desktop. So it cannot be installed either.

In short: at the moment, you cannot have a KDE Pim Suite.

I have ~100 patches locally to make it build against Qt5WebKit again, which
turn let's it be installed again. However, one of the reasons WebEngine was
chosen upstream to replace WebKit was security. So I'm not quite sure, these
patches are really the "right" thing to do. Also they need more work =)
