 - have you built and installed all of the dependencies before trying to build qt5?
 - they are (in order):
 - pyhton3
 - ninja
 - meson
 - libxkbcommon

 - the last is listed in the REQUIRES field of the qt5.info file you got
 - from this repositories, and the other are dependencies of the
 - dependencies (and so on).

 - Matteo
Many thanks, Matteo
I can't believe I missed that - sorry for the unnecessary post!
After installing the dependencies, qt5 appears to be building just fine - the compile has been going for 3 days on an old Pentium D system - another day should do it.
Thanks againAlan
