Argh. So apparently Qt's done something weird with licensing, and now
the packages in the Ubuntu repo are like 5.12 and to use 5.5 or better
you either have to download their installer or build from source?

just rewrite the damned thing as an Electron app, especially since I
need some native audio processing, but ugh.
