Just FYI, Larry Haja has pushed his qt5 update to 5.7.1 in a separate
branch for testing. So far, he managed to fix couple of packages which
relies on Qt5. You can help by building Qt 5.7.1 and see if your
packages are affected with this change.

I'm able to build Qt5 5.7.1 just fine on my VM and also on my desktop
computer at home.

PS: i'm planning to merge it on this week's public update. Let me know
if you found a broken package due to this new update.
