I think this one is actively maintained: 
https://sourceforge.net/projects/winflexbison/ and I used it to compile 
Qt5.5 with msvc2013 (somewhere in the qt docs there's a link to this 
project). So it *should* work with KF5 too. But someone has to test it. 
It's out of my scope because currently I don't have a working 
environment for KF5.
