The change to force use of Qt4 has been pushed and should appear in the
next round of updates. Thanks for raising the build problem when Qt5 is
already installed.

Use of Qt5 instead of Qt4 doesn't seem possible with the currently
released code. It works with the newer vlc-3 but that isn't officially
released yet and requires a more recent version of ffmpeg to be useful.
