Download link not working at the moment.

If the download link was the only thing that's not working I would have been updating these packages again a long time ago. However, that's not the case (see

So far I don't have a lot of motivation to improve the situation. Qt 6 has been switching to CMake which requires much less patching so I might give it a try again with Qt 6.

Please be aware that this way of compiling/using Qt is really not supported in any way; not by Apple and consequently also not by Qt. This way is not the easy way, it is the "cool" way if you're into cross-compilation and feel the urge desire to deal with build system issues.

All my packages are managed at GitHub where you can also contribute directly: Patches for this package are managed at: There also exist a binary repository: Not for all further Qt repositories are apple-darwin PKGBUILDs available yet. If you need to build a repository which is not available yet (eg. apple-darwin-qt5-multimedia) let me know. It makes more sense when I provide all apple-darwin-qt5-* packages myself to better accordance and consistency of the components. Also note that despite the build succeeds, the resulting binaries don't seem to work. This is maybe a result of using libstdc++ from GCC rather than libc++ provided by Apple. I did this decision because there where some header files for libc++ missing. I believe this is due to incorrect packaging of the SDK. Till this issue is fixed, it makes no sense to further update this package. I currently don't have enough time, but I would continue working on this in a half year. If you would like to contribute, the relevant repositories are the ones on top of this comment. Note that some of the patches are already rebased for mingw-w64 version of Qt 5.9.2.
