The mac_deploy_qt script *should* be used and any bugs with it should be 
reported and fixed. Ignoring it because of some past issues is pointless.

If you have a better tool from your buildsystem, like in the case of cmake, 
then by all means use it. If you have a tool that is integrated with the rest 
of your system, use it too. But reinventing the wheel when the script already 
works is just waste of resources.

As for deploying the plugins... more often than not, application authors do 
not realise they need those plugins. For example, all JPEG support comes from 
a plugin, as does SQLite. Besides, compared to the size of QtGui, the plugins 
are quite small.
