For Qt4, the Yocto project can create a "qt toolchain" that creates
qmake with appropriate defaults for sysroot location and Qt
configuration options.

This isn't yet integrated for Qt5, but I think the same can be
accomplished by "installing Qt" into the Yocto-generated sysroot
after building Qt5 with the Yocto-generated toolchain.
