I can't help on portupgrade. but for portmaster, here is a start:
# pkg delete -f qt4-qmake qt4-rcc qt4-clucene qt4-webkit-4.8.7
qt4-linguisttools qt5-qmake dbus-qt5
# portmaster qt4- qt5-

My update is still working on qt4-assistant, ATM, and the huge webkit build
is just starting. All of the qt5 stuff comes next, so the list is likely
not complete. I'll post an update if this finishes before I have to leave
in a couple of hours.

I suspect that the same package deletions are required for portupgrade.
