i've just set up a machine with a fresh installation of El Capitan, Xcode 8.2 
and Qt 5.8. i'm now trying to follow the build instructions given here:

unfortunately, when testing the setup with "craft kate", building phonon fails 
with this error:

CMake Error at /Users/rkward/Qt5.8.0/5.8/clang_64/lib/cmake/Qt5UiPlugin/
Qt5UiPluginConfig.cmake:11 (message):
  The imported target "Qt5::UiPlugin" references the file


  but this file does not exist.  Possible reasons include:

  * The file was deleted, renamed, or moved to another location.

  * An install or uninstall procedure did not complete successfully.

  * The installation package was faulty and contained


  but not all the files it references.

Call Stack (most recent call first):
Qt5UiPluginConfig.cmake:33 (_qt5_UiPlugin_check_file_exists)
Qt5DesignerConfig.cmake:81 (find_package)
  CMakeLists.txt:71 (find_package)

any ideas what i'm missing?

one other thing, craft wasn't able to checkout anything at first, until i 
applied the following workaround that already helped me when emerge was used 
(which, btw, christoph cullmann wanted to add to the instructions page almost 
a year ago ;-)):

echo "[url \"\"]
insteadOf = kde:    
[url \"git at\"]
pushInsteadOf = kde:
" >> ~/.gitconfig
