What's "-qt5" ? Latest Qt 5.x.y available? A shorthand for "qmake
-qt=5.0.0"? Something else?

Also, why not use pkg-config --list-all and simply look for everything
called "libqt-x.y.z" or alike? (I know, I know, no external dependencies is
an advantage and this new qmake is very easy to implement but still...)
