On Linux/macOS the current directory is not automatically/always an path where the dynamic linker searches implicitly for dependencies. That's only Windows :)

Thanks, Ivan. While this is true for other libs like xcb, Qt does not ship
icu. It uses either the one provided by the system or a thin replacement
resulting in a reduced localization feature set according to

I am a bit confused by "-R .". after reading the documentation:

        -R <string> ........ Add an explicit runtime library path to the Qt

I thought that "." is always implicitly the first path where the run-time
linker looks for (other)libraries. So I don't understand why it is set
