For the record, that's how Qt 5 is actually built for EL7. But yeah, it's 
frowned upon in Fedora. (RHEL/EPEL is more pragmatic because they know the 
system libraries are old there. Though the rules against bundling are not as 
strict in Fedora as they used to be, either. Still, we see it as a last 
resort only.)
