While I don't really understand that message, I would probably start at

I would say that it's a total mission-impossible to get Qt5 working on
PPC anyway, but with some "cleanup" one could probably get an older
version of Qt5 working on 10.9 for example (I know that some older
version of Qt 5 worked on 10.7). It might be a can of worms to get it
working properly though.
