If Qt4 and Qt5 are installed in

setqt4 or source
setqt5 to choose which one will be used to build
the Qt-based GUI.
Install CMake by running the following commands:
./bootstrap --prefix=/usr \ --system-libs \ --mandir=/share/man \ --no-system-jsoncpp \ --docdir=/share/doc/cmake-3.5.2 && make
To test the results, issue: bin/ctest

procedures finding the correct Qt files. One of 444 tests is known
to fail under some circumstances related to Gtk+2 and c++
