It seems to be a fine scrpt but I kept getting
errors on bits and pieces of Qt5.4. Here is a
typical message:
project has asked CMake to find a package
configuration file provided by
  "Qt5LinguistTools", but CMake did not find one.

  Could not find a package configuration file
  provided by "Qt5LinguistTools"
  with any of the following names:


  Add the installation prefix of
  "Qt5LinguistTools" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or
  set "Qt5LinguistTools_DIR" to a directory
  containing one of the above
  files.  If "Qt5LinguistTools" provides a
  separate development package or
  SDK, be sure it has been installed.
So I have been doing this over and over again:

Finally I got smart and trimmed the "qtpath"
parameter a little bit:
At this setting the program just compiled.

This is a little scary since that directory
includes both android and gcc subdirectories.
Maybe I'll just delete the Android one. 

Thanks for a nice script!
