Those two statements are contradictory. Getting a C++17-capable compiler 
working on CentOS/RHEL 5 is going to be very difficult.

GCC didn't achieve a good C++17 support until GCC 7 (released in May 2017). 
CentOS 5 reached EOL in March 2017. So there's no official devtoolset 
containing GCC 7.

I'm pretty sure the version of Qt they forked from already didn't support 
CentOS 5.

If you meant CentOS 6 instead, that's another story.
