This doesn't look like something caused by Qt 5.15, more like an issue with 
the FreeBSD DVB headers, builds on Linux.

MSVC-only, or rather GCC/clang being a bit too forgiving. 

atcore looks like an ambiguous default argument, removing that should fix it, 
but since this is a public interface I didn't want to just change this, being 
unable to estimate the impact.

kmymoney is using an exported class in two DLLs with the same export macro, 
that doesn't work. Needs more insights into the project to restructure that 
accordingly I think.

build errors seem to be in stuff downloaded by cmake!?
