in the end, build RKWard from our kf5 branch and create a binary bundle 
package from it.

no, it's not there.

yes, it's there.

does that mean the Qt installation is somehow messed up?

so far i'm simply trying to follow the instructions from the KDE website, they 
specifically ask for the official Qt installer. aren't those instructions 
supposed to work, then?

no, i'm not. but now that you mention it, i was a bit surprised to see it set 
as the KDECOMPILER as the result of ". craft/" (as well as the 
windows path for python, but that doesn't seem to have any effect):

KDEROOT     : /Users/rkward/software/kf5
KDECOMPILER : mingw-w64
KDESVNDIR   : /Users/rkward/software/kf5/download/svn
KDEGITDIR   : /Users/rkward/software/kf5/download/git
DOWNLOADDIR : /Users/rkward/software/kf5/download
PYTHONPATH  : C:\ProgramFiles\Python

however, KDECOMPILER is not actually set in the environment, of those 
variables only KDEROOT seems to be present.

i didn't try to do that. the configure messages also listed AppleClang as

looks like it. at least, without these overrides craft failed because it 
couldn't download anything.
