Thank you very much for your help. conda does have some support for
specifying binary files that need patching like this, but I had not tried
patching files *and* removing qt.conf. This worked, thank you!

Is there anything special about building a -no-framework qt5 on OS X
(10.9)? Using the same recipe as I did for linux, but with -no-framework, I
can build (though not in parallel), and qmake -query looks right. But I get
a segfault if I try to run designer.
