Looks like qr5 has a dependency issue as qt5-core was updated three days
ago. Since packages were updated or the rest of the qt5 stuff, I suspect
that the dependency tree did not see qt5-core as a dependency.

Be sure your INDEX is current. If you are not sure, "make -C /usr/ports

I would suggest trying to update qt5-core and see if the appropriate
package in there. You can check with "pkg version | grep qt5-core".
If you want to update all packages, update your INDEX and "pkg upgrade".
If you don't want all packages upgraded, you need to force  qt5-core upgrade
There may be an easier way to force and upgrade, but this should do it:
# pkg delete -f qt5-core
# pkg install qt5-core

You should probably open a bug report on this.
Also, for legal reasons, lame can't be distributed as a binary. If you want
mp3 support, you will need to install it from sources using the port.
