No loss there.  There are hundreds of magic words in qmake and the doc 
only mentions the bare basics.  Everything else is google to find out 
how someone else solved the problem.

My current quest is
      make install
      install {
in a .pro file.  This gets 3 sentences in the doc. There is a wee bit 
more to it than that.

You're probably not missing stuff.  Qt is all about the platform 
independent frontend.

#include <QtWidgets>
is just a shortcut instead of including the 40 or so most common objects 
individually.  I guess that is a Qt-5-ism.
(You could delete that line and then walk through the individual 
undefined object errors. ;) )

Hmm, Now I wonder if qtpovray will build with Qt-4.8.
Certainly the websockets I was using is Qt-5, but that's not in this 
edition.  I'll have to give it a try.
