I have pretty much the same requirement where I still need 4.7.1 to 
build for an embedded device.  I had Qt 4.7.1 on Fedora 16.  I upgraded 
QtCreator's SDK with the latest and it installed Qt5.  I added a kit and 
chose version 4.7.1 which was still installed.  Now I can choose 
whichever kit I want to build with.  I've also set up some kits to 
deploy remotely using either.

If you have a new install of Ubuntu, you can install the latest Qt SDK 
and you will get Qt 5 and then you can always add 4.7.1.
