May I ask some stupid question: how many different qmake-s you're need
in your $PATH ?!
Maybe it's only me? - on Windows I do have a directory per Qt build,
on Linux I do have symlink /user/bin/qmake ->
/usr/opt/Qt/4.8/bin/qmake. And I never have a feeling I need few more
qmake-s around!

> It's possible to ask qmake for the path where the other binaries, headers, examples, and a lot of other stuff are supposed to be: "qmake -query".
> If we set the standards for distributions to have also e.g. /usr/lib/qt5/bin/qmake
> in addition to a symbolic link from /usr/bin/qmake to the "current" setting, a script can take "qmake" from the PATH (which can be set to whatever), and ask it where the other things are.

That's almost the same I've told about at IRC today :)
