 ??? It's been months that I've been working on concurrent Qt4 and Qt5
 ports, and only now I catch wind there has been previous discussion to
 install it *elsewhere* than I have been proposing, and then only because
 something gets committed without even taking up the slighest detail with

 Just a few of the remarks I'd have made:

 - no need to call the installation directory qt5-mac . The whole
 distinction qtN-mac vs qtN-somethingElse has become moot now that Qt moved
 to the QPA plugin approach and does not officially support non-native mode
 on OS X
 - depending on PulseAudio is *not* required for anything (that I know of),
 not anymore than building the internal phonon stuff.
 - why add -qml-debug
 - probably more but I'm on a clock right now
