So I applied the latest patch from gerrit to Qt 5.3.2, and in the end got this from qtdiag:

Standard paths [*...* denote writable entry]:

In other words, I've been sleeping on the job again, talking about using the install prefix, and not realising that in my own work to make the Qt ports co-installable, -prefix != ${prefix} because I use -prefix=${prefix}/libexec/qt5 :-/

I am calling configure with the options

>         -prefix         ${qt_dir}              \
>         -docdir         ${qt_docs_dir}         \
>         -headerdir      ${qt_includes_dir}     \
>         -plugindir      ${qt_plugins_dir}      \
>         -importdir      ${qt_imports_dir}      \
>         -qmldir         ${qt_qml_dir}          \
>         -datadir        ${qt_data_dir}         \
>         -libdir         ${qt_frameworks_dir}   \
>         -bindir         ${qt_bins_dir}         \
>         -translationdir ${qt_translations_dir} \
>         -sysconfdir     ${qt_sysconf_dir}      \
>         -examplesdir    ${qt_examples_dir}     \
>         -testsdir       ${qt_tests_dir}        \
>         -hostdatadir    ${qt_host_data_dir}

(I only changed the paths passed in, not the options used). Is there another path specification option that can be used to get the path /opt/local/share (${prefix}/share) where it belongs??
