[Qgis-developer] Qt platform plugin "cocoa".

That's probably because that Qt plugin is not bundled into the app.  The QGIS Mac installation does not know about changes in Qt 5 file organization yet.  I don't have Qt 5, so I can't figure out those changes to update the source.

You could try configuring with QGIS_MACAPP_BUNDLE=0 so that it doesn't bundle Qt.  This makes the app less portable.

Is QGIS in general even ready for Qt 5?

Theory of the Universe

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarrely inexplicable.  There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
