Unless you have some reason to believe that the QT5 version of
fpcupdeluxe doesn't build lazarus with QT5 bindings, I have already
tried this idea and still seen the same problem.  Yes, I deleted back
EVERYTHING except for the actual fpcupdeluxe executable - all config
files and the entire target directory - from the GTK2 build. Then I
downloaded the QT5 version of the executable and ran that. Once again,
it built, but I still saw the key mapping etc. problem.

Since I've come this far, though, I guess I'm willing to try building
the lazarus code downloaded via subversion with the QT5 bindings. Is
there a web page, or some other documentation, that leads me though
doing that? I've never previously built the QT5 version except the
attempt to build it via fpcupdeluxe.
