I've uploaded a patch that updates the macdeployqt plugin logic [1], perhaps this fixes the to-many plugins and frameworks issue? If you run macdeployqt with -verbose=2 you should see how the various frameworks are pulled in.

This sort of maintenance is unfortunately needed since the plugin deployment logic is implemented as a black-list (deploy all plugins with exceptions). We might consider doing it differently for Qt 5 and use a white-list instead.
