Why can't you simply require it as an external dependency? GNU/Linux 
distributions already package it as a standalone package. (See e.g. 
http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/rpms/qtsingleapplication.git/tree/ which 
builds both the Qt 4 version and the Qt 5 version from the same upstream 
source code.)
