Summary: Issue of installing xxdiff with port on building qt3qt3 build fails

You could attach the main.log file mentioned in the error message; that would tell us why it failed to build.

But note that qt3 is very old, having been superseded by qt4 and then by qt5. Probably nobody is interested in fixing the ancient qt3 port at this point.

Instead, we should try to move anything that is using qt3 off of that and onto a newer qt. It looks like there is a new version 4 of the xxdiff project now, which uses qt4. We should try to update the port to that version. Ticket #44526 tracks our progress of attempting to do so.

Thanks for your comment. Here I attached "main.log". I see. Now qt3 is very old. I would really like to use xxdiff with qt4 and let me know the version when it will be available.

It's directly inspecting /usr/include for headers. It could probably be persuaded to look in the SDK one way or another.
