If you have some old library that needs libstdc++, then you're stuck with it 
for now. That means you must tell your linker not to use libc++, so you need 
to ensure that the -stdlib=libstdc++ is passed to all steps of the build 
(compiler and linker). Otherwise you'll get the linker errors you mentioned.

And the other features.

Please be aware of the warning about Qt 5.7: support is getting dropped 
because Qt 5.7 will require <atomic>.

Qt 5.6 will be a long-term release, but you may still want to figure out a 
replacement library or at least a rebuild of it.
