Given that not even Snow Leopard 10.6 is supported *for development* anymore (but IIRC you can still *deploy* your Qt applications on 10.6) I don't think you can compile Qt 5.x "out of the box" on OS X < 10.7.

Unless you are prepared to fiddle around with the sources (mostly the Objective C sources which interface with the Cocoa etc. API, I assume) and/or manually upgrade your compiler.
