[Qt-creator] Creator doesn't like my local Qt 5 build?

Hi Creator peoples,

I have a "typical" developer build of Qt 5 (shadow build, 
-developer-build) that I've been using with Creator 2.5.0 (public 
release) for a few weeks.

The thing is, Creator doesn't seem to like it very much. It complains 
that it cannot find headers from the QtCore library (though if I look at 
where qmake -query says the headers should be, they are there). Things 
like F1 just don't work for pretty much any class even though I built 
the docs.

One consequence of the modularization is that headers for modules that 
aren't part of qtbase don't go into qtbase/include so I would understand 
if Creator can't find them (though, how do I get Creator to find them in 
that case?).

Are there any hints on how to setup a Qt 5 install that Creator will use
