[Qt-creator] Qt versions

Qt versioning is still haunting me.

I just pulled the recent stable, building for Android, and the build 
goes ok.  However, after install it insists on claiming it is still Qt 
5.2.2, and all the libs have 5.2.2 suffix.

I configure with:

make distclean
./configure -opensource -confirm-license -xplatform android-g++ -nomake 
tests -nomake examples -android-ndk /home/harri/android-ndk-r9c 
-android-sdk /home/harri/android-sdk-linux -android-ndk-host 
linux-x86_64 -android-toolchain-version 4.8 -skip qttranslations -skip 
qtwebkit -skip qtserialport -skip qtwebkit-examples -skip qtquick1 -skip 
qt3d -skip qtjsondb -skip qtsystems -no-warnings-are-errors -prefix

     stable                      tracked
   Local branches configured for 'git pull':
     dev    merges with remote dev
     stable merges with remote stable
   Local refs configured for 'git push':
     dev    pushes to dev    (local out of date)
     stable pushes to stable (up to date)

Based on your explanation below, I would have thought stable is 5.3.x by
