Comment 1 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2017-12-28 15:50:26 UTC
Last commit 6 years ago. Is there any point in keeping this package in tree? If yes, USE=qt4 will need to be dropped if it can not be built using Qt5.
Comment 2 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2018-01-04 10:42:42 UTC
yes, it has many reverse deps needing it:
dev-java/gnu-classpath/gnu-classpath-0.98-r6.ebuild:		dssi? ( >=media-libs/dssi-0.9 )
media-plugins/hexter/hexter-1.0.2.ebuild:	>=media-libs/dssi-0.4
media-plugins/hexter/hexter-1.0.3.ebuild:	>=media-libs/dssi-0.4
media-plugins/xsynth-dssi/xsynth-dssi-0.9.2.ebuild:	>=media-libs/dssi-0.9
media-plugins/xsynth-dssi/xsynth-dssi-0.9.4.ebuild:	>=media-libs/dssi-0.9
media-sound/amsynth/amsynth-1.3.2-r1.ebuild:		media-libs/dssi:=

media-sound/csound/csound-9999.ebuild:		media-libs/dssi
media-sound/qtractor/qtractor-0.8.4.ebuild:	dssi? ( media-libs/dssi )
media-sound/qtractor/qtractor-0.8.5.ebuild:	dssi? ( media-libs/dssi )
media-sound/rosegarden/rosegarden-17.04.ebuild:	>=media-libs/dssi-1.0.0:=
media-sound/sonic-visualiser/sonic-visualiser-2.5.ebuild:	>=media-libs/dssi-0.9.1
media-sound/sonic-visualiser/sonic-visualiser-3.0.2.ebuild:	>=media-libs/dssi-0.9.1

I would opt for dropping qt4 support then instead
