Ian: see, there shouldn't be anything particular for you to do other than to invoke the cmake command from MacPorts...

qtchooser is a tool that simply wraps the rest of the Qt tools and runs the
correct one for you, depending on an argument or the environment. Unlike
QTDIR, the environment variable (QT_SELECT) points to a configuration file,
allowing for the more flexible installation setups that have been allowed since
As for cmake, the answer is simple: they contain hardcoded absolute paths to
the Qt tools inside the Qt prefix. Those tools are expected to remain where
they are and not get renamed. They don't need the "-qt5" argument because
cmake isn't calling qtchooser, it's calling the tool directly.
/usr/bin/moc -> qtchooser
/usr/lib64/qt5/bin/moc actual tool
The cmake file points to the latter and cmake never runs the former.
