Follow-up Comment #5, bug #55883 (project octave):

By dropping support for Qt < 5.4, do you mean just these old versions of Qt5,
or both that and Qt4?

On Slackware the latest version (14.2) ships with Qt4 only.  Users would have
to find a Qt5 package or spend several hours compiling Qt5, which is fine but
inconvenient.  However there's the problem of finding a Qt5 version of
QScintilla (see bug #48773, Slackware ships with a Qt4 version, and I'm not
aware of any package or build script for a Qt5 version) so a lot of users
compile against Qt4 instead of Qt5 to get its functionality.
