Works flawlessly. You definitely want to heed the comments in the
pkg/DESCR, that explain how to compile stuff here.
There are/might be minor issues with qmake, and it definitely looks
like only the -mt flavor will make sense in the future... there were
a few bumps while porting knode and kmail. Those have been fixed before
As far as OpenBSD goes, the qt3 port follows what goes on in kde land
fairly closely, in terms of stability.
You're more likely to be hampered by C++ issues, since OpenBSD 3.4 ships
with gcc 2.95.3 (and OpenBSD 3.5 will too, apart from sparc64). Using
qt3 with gcc 3.3.x more or less requires recompiling everything C++ with
Fortunately, qt3 ships with a fairly large collection of good classes,
which somewhat offsets the poor support of the STL in gcc 2.95.
The multilingual support of qt3 + XFree is also very good, especially
compared to the current lack of locale in OpenBSD.
