Hi Karim, 

I understand your problem but unfortunately I still have a limited 
understanding of the intrication of the whole metadata system… 

The good news is that the meta-toolchain-qt5 recipe is quite empty. So I think 
your best option is to patch the populate_sdk task to include what is added by 
the qt5 layer. Once you have something working, you can then think on how to 
make it more permanent. 

grep & find will be your best friends --- at least, they are for me ;-)
