I just randomly tried one of these ports, here is the output:

You have QT3 files installed!  Installing this port
will result in conflicts between QT3 and QT2!
*** Error code 1

Stop in /speed/usr.ports/x11-toolkits/qt23.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /speed/usr.ports/x11-wm/xwmm.

My question is, should a PR be submitted requesting this port be
dropped? I know I don't want QT2 on my system and assume most others
feel the same way. If a PR is appropriate to request this port be
dropped I'll be happy to submit it.
