I forgot to provide a link to Wiki page that details how to build
Qt for CentOS 6:


It seems that gcc 4.6 isn't new enough, though the article doesn't
give a reason for installing gcc 4.8 instead of 4.7. The warning
that qmake reports about QtWebEngine mentions gcc 4.7, I think,
but perhaps it's best to use 4.8 to be on the safe side.
