Unfortunately the maintainer has a blocker issue for Qt5 since upgrading
to newer version means that some other script will have to be removed
since it can't be built with newer Qt5 without upgrading core packages
in Slackware.

My personal recommendation is we need 2 separate Qt5 script. The
original Qt5 can be bumped to newer version, but we can have like Qt57
which stays at 5.7.1 thus all packages that need the original Qt 5.7.1
can switch to the new Qt57.

What do you think Larry ?
