All of them fail.
qTox fails with this error message:

-- Checking for one of the modules 'libtoxav'
CMake Error at cmake/Dependencies.cmake:73 (message):
  TOXAV package, library or framework not found

You need to tell them. I saw that they were saying that they will release toxcore once qTox works with it.

Yes, of course, this is why I did not upgrade net-im/tox but submitted this on phabricator!
We have to wait for updates of the clients and synchronize them.
E.g., toxic released a new version today: see

I've just submitted a PR, it will be easier to coordinate the different ports:

There are many .so removed. If there are any port that link with them, you need to bump them so that they get rebuilt.

There is a disagreement in uTox
One influential project member doesn't trust the TokTok/c-toxcore version.
Otherwise, the patch is ready there since Dec 30, 2017.

I think you should branch out net-im/tox12, keep uTox on it, and commit the new tox-0.2.0.
Otherwise there could be months until this is resolved.
