About the bz2 problems, there is a fix already in gerrit for that: https://codereview.qt-project.org/#change,32958 , hopefully it will be reviewed and merged soon.

I'll check the tar.gz issues, so far I haven't have any problems with those packages, but I'll check.

I spoke too soon there are also issues with the .tar.gz version :(

The attached file shows the results of manifest tests I run: the difference between a manifest list I had for Qt5 some days verses http://releases.qt-project.org/digia/2012-08-19/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.0.0.tar.gz

Note that
*  the "reference manifest" I have is not necessarily authoritative since it was determined from a pre-beta Qt 5 source package ;)
* I did not create a bug since I understood that the packaging scripts are being actively developed

 From a Qt user perspective I find that Qt 5 does not compile using a "minimal" set of configure options since at least the content from the qtxmlpattern repo is missing from the Qt 5 source package. In case it helps see the attached minimalbuild.tar.gz for the log files associated with this build.
