I concur. Apparently, nothing else depends on it. I also have
absolutely no idea when or how it got installed. The problem is that
with my luck I'll delete it and something, somehow will break.

There is nothing wrong with my QT4 ports. They are all up-to-date.
Nothing else, and I have 1104 ports installed, has a problem with them.
Maybe I'll just file a PR against the port and forget about it. I have
the older version installed so there is no reason to really worry about
this one (I hope).
