no, because libQtCore.so.5.0.0 would also live in /usr/lib/qt5/lib and
the one in /usr/lib would be a symlink only. *all* FHS locations would
be symlinks only. know the tool 'stow'?

just make it /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/qt5/lib.
not sure how duplication of headers would be handled, but given that
qconfig.h theoretically can be arch-specific, the whole set may need to
be duplicated.
