[Interest] QtPdf from Qt open source online installer

I used QtPdf for mac and windows for my open source project (cavehere.com).

I have to build QtPdf from source and install it for each platform and Qt
version. Although it's not too bad, it isn't as automatic as all the other
Qt modules. It would be great if it was supported directly.
