OK, new qt5-qtbase builds on the way:

* Mon Feb 16 2015 Rex Dieter <rdieter at> 5.4.0-13
- -no-use-gold-linker (f22+, #1193044)

as well as qt-4.8 gcc5-related build fixes:
* Mon Feb 16 2015 Rex Dieter <rdieter at> 1:4.8.6-24
- more gcc5 detection fixes, in particular, ensure same QT_BUILD_KEY as gcc4 
for now

Per 4.8, I'll be posting patches upstream for review, will assume that qt's 
default QT_BUILD_KEY will include g++-5 , but we won't change our f23 
packaging/patches until they agree/standardize on that.  (f22 builds will 
remain gcc4 compatible)
