OSX 10.5 is not supported by Qt 5, in particular it is not supported by
Mac QPA plugin. If using X11 is not what you want, fork of QPA plugin
will be needed (if you are interested in it I can try to help you, I'm 
somewhat interested too).

g++ 4.2 from Xcode 3.1 is old and buggy so it also can make troubles.
You'll need to patch mkspecs to fix -mmacosx-version-min=10.6 also.
