In the absence of any qt4 installation, I have now succeeded in
building qt5 and qupzilla in /usr.  So, it looks as if my earlier
failure to link qupzilla when using qt5 in /usr was probably caused
by something from qt4 (which was also in /usr) getting pulled in.

I'll look at trying to build kf5 in /usr after I've had some sleep
and thought about what to drop (e.g. with no vlc I won't be building
the phonon vlc backend).
