The closest might be http://pkg-kde.alioth.debian.org/packagingqtstuff.html

Just use export QT_SELECT=5 (or export QT_SELECT := 5 in debian/rules)
and run qmake normally.

That's in qtbase5-private-dev since it's a private header that normal
apps should not be using.

Possibly since you were only specifying the Qt version to use for the
single tool, and the default fallback is Qt 4. That is, Qt 4
applications don't need to know about different Qt versions, but Qt 5
applications need to for example set that environment variable.
