umbrello for example depends on about 50 other libraries and packages
Not patching Qt requires to repack every single package :-(, by either
hacking the cmake build system to use different install locations or to
reorder the installed files after cmake installing.

Having Qt support for "standard linux path layout" for example by
extending qt.conf to support QStandardPath (qt.conf is already required
for KDE on Windows) shortcuts this repackaging need completly.
