I refactored the alpha branch so that it now can compile against both Qt4 and Qt5 on linux. I fixed up the cmake to properly find and use Qt5 as well as fixed up the code to address API changes between Qt4 and Qt5.

My changes are in the alpha branch here:

I was able to confirm that this branch compiles against both Qt4 and Qt5 on Mac OS X Mountain Lion. I was able to use the same procedure as the linux build.

For Qt4:

mkdir build && cd build
cmake ..

For Qt5:

mkdir build && cd build
cmake -DUSE_QT5=ON -DQT5_SDK_PATH=/Users/<username>/Qt5.0.0/5.0.0/clang_64 ..

There seem to be problems with the cmake files that keep it from generating Xcode projects. I'm getting some errors. But those errors existed before my refactor.

I am now testing on Windows 7 to make sure that it can build against both Qt4 and Qt5 there too.
