Clearly valuable info for a less qualified end user like me who is used to only hitting Enter a couple of times in sbopkg, because most of the times things just work. I can certainly benefit from this list of steps in the future if you add it to the qt5 README, as long as you consider it appropriate.

Meanwhile qt5-styleplugins has successfully built with the patch from your branch and I've got a working and properly GTK-style themed working qbittorrent-qt5. I will try the patch for retroshare now and will report back. Thanks for the hints.
