Interesting that you don't use nomake-tests. Do you run the tests too?

To verify that the cmake files work, after installing the packages, please try 
to run the unit tests for cmake which are in each repo/tarball with something 
like this:

 cd tests/auto/cmake && mkdir build && cd build && cmake .. && ctest

Each module source package has those tests.

The 7ac58d1ff0815566ba1de09519299b5119e5ee91 wouldn't help with this issue, 
but if you were going to stick with packaging 5.0.1 with possibly the 
b9c1593435db3ed44e23c23dc19f22d7a68d7b01 patch, you would want to cherry-pick 
the other patch too. Otherwise your users would have trouble using the Qt5 
cmake files.

As it looks like you're going to switch to 5.0.2 already, this seems to be a 
non-issue indeed.
