Just to follow up, the issue is that on mac, Qmake produces binaries that
do not include the path information for the Qt libraries to which it was
linked. This is not usually a problem, since the libraries are usually
installed in a location on the default library search path, or the qt mac
deployment tool takes care of bundling things up properly for distribution.
But it can occasionally be a problem, and a bug report is here:
