 - qt5-mac has now been upgrades to 5.4.2 (r137535)
 - Calling the directory qt5-mac might have been unnecessary. It is just
 - The configure script uses PulseAudio if it is found (hence the
 dependency). It is possible to force the script not to look for it, but I
 tried to stay close to default behavior.
 - Similarly, qml-debug is used because it is the default behavior.
