Please note this port hasn't been tested yet as I don't have the time/bandwidth to download/compile all the Qt framework. If you do, please give the attached port a try. If it works I'll submit it to the ports collection.

Hakisho Nukama,

Thank you very much for cleaning up the port and making it work. It is 
very appreciated.

You're right about PBIMaker, the dependency is there so we can make use 
of the default icon. And the version number has been corrected in the 
updated port I submitted yesterday.

I will submit the EasyPBI port to the ports collection. Hopefully it 
will be available for everyone to install soon.

Thanks again,
