A few questions/comments...
1.) patch-mkspecs_openbsd-g++_qmake_conf looks like a bit of a hack.  Is
there a better way to do this so that the chages are only applied when
TQt3 is built on a BSD (non-Linux) platform?
2.) What is the point of patch-plugins_src_sqldrivers_sqldrivers_pro?
3.) patch-qmake_generators_unix_unixmake2_cpp largely looks OK for merge,
with the potential exception of line 385.  Why was this added?  I can
check for Linux compatibility if it is needed for proper BSD compilation.
4.) patch-qmake_generators_unix_unixmake_cpp looks OK for merge.
5.) We will not be merging patch-src_kernel_ntqstyle.h, but if you could
please post the build log without that applied I can fix the real problem
in GIT.
6.) patch-src_tools_qmutex_unix_cpp looks OK for merge.
7.) patch-src_tools_qstring.cpp looks OK for merge, but we do need to
document somewhere that the secured memory feature of TQString is not
available except on Linux (unless BSD has a similar feature to keep a
specific memory segment out of the swap file).
8.) patch-src_widgets_qlineedit_cpp looks OK for merge, but see previous
note in 7.) on documentation and/or fixing the issue.

Overall good work!  The main thing I want to see at this point is
autodetection of BSD so that we don't have to manually apply the first
patch for all the others to work.
