We don't make that choice -- not for Mac OS X, at least, not now.

Qt 5 will link to the library that the compiler and linker on the platform 
makes Qt link to. Please consult your compiler and linker documentation for 
more information.

We did make the choice for Solaris: we decided to add the -stlport option 
because the Sun CC's default Standard Library is so old that it doesn't pass 
the current definition of "STL" in Qt.
