I assume with "KDE5" you mean all the frameworks and maybe Plasma 2? For the 
frameworks there are build instructions:

It's written around kdesrc-build and I can only recommend to use that tool and 
don't try to build it manually. Just having the dependency resolutions between 
all the frameworks is rather complex. So use the tooling :-)

The nice thing about using kdesrc-build is that you easily get also Plasma 2 
and the frameworks based applications.
