I just realized that there's a potential problem for EPEL 6. It currently
has qwt 5.1.1 and it's part of the base OS and not an EPEL package, so it's
not possible to do the single spec file solution.

So what's everyone's thoughts on this? Should it just be a separate package
called qwt-qt5 in EPEL 6? Or is there a better solution?
