I tried to install FreeCAD. I see it's masked because of dependency on QT4. The development variant uses QT5 already.
So I decided that instead of unmasking QT4 stuff I would do better by installing the development one.
It's in layman in fordfrog overlay.
It requires development QT so I added qt overlay as well.
After solving all conflicts I'm ready to emerge...but requiring 2 overlays, 9 unmasks, 9 accept_keywords lines and 3 use changes makes me think that maybe I should stop now, remove whatever I added to my portage and get FreeCAD some other way.
Maybe unmask QT4?
Maybe do something completely different?

Any suggestions?

I did not read that bug before, but I found just the same ebuild of FreeCAD. And it caused so many troubles.

Installing now...

One of dependencies from the fordfrog overlay doesn't build (SoQt).
What is the best place to go to ask for support?

You have appimage on their site. Just download, chmod +x and run it.

Now that's a great solution!
I downloaded it, manually installed a single dependency and it works.
Thanks a lot for that!

I gave up on building FreeCAD and did it this way. Now life is no longer sad r.e. FreeCAD.
