It's not like that doesn't produce any output, but judging from the mangled names they're all Qt functions (OpenGL.framework is written in C I presume?)

Erm, no, I wouldn't call that a bug in the linking. It's more that Qt5's platform plugin architecture apparently hasn't been conceived to support platforms that use/require different OpenGL libraries. For that to work Qt would either have to encapsulate all OpenGL functions in the platform plugin, or load the libraries dynamically.
