Hmm... you're right. There's no check for a program with a different name in
the new Makefile. I apologise, I never tested that case.

Fedora is knowingly deviating from Qt Project recommendations. I will fix
this, but please file a bug report against their Qt packages so there's some
pressure to adopt a standard solution that everyone else already does.
