I’ve got 5.3 and 5.4 running from the Qt installer

   what a pain to install like 12 hours each
   for a customer 1 installed the licensed version, boy complete install in an hour
   ie you pay you get fast downloads

Why can’t / doesnt macports do what Qt does - a complete directory for each install eg for me /opt/Qt5.3 /opt/Qt5.4 the only file I *need* to access is qmake. I guess the versions of designer and creator need to be wellKnown too.
