Your Qt is broken.

/usr/local/lib/ undefined symbol: u_strToUpper_68

"Couldn't update Qt5 repository submodules!" means running the init-repository command from the qt5 repo failed, maybe you don't have perl or any of the perl dependencies for that command? 

Well i guess you have perl since kdesrc-build is in perl, anyhow you'll have to figure out what's going on wrong with that command
