Phonon4Qt5 & Phonon5 Branches

As you may be aware phonon supports building the phonon4 API against Qt5 by
building the phonon4qt5 branch.

Due to consolidation efforts at the Phonon sprint last weekend the
phonon4qt5 transitional library is now merged into the master branch of
both phonon and phonon-vlc (gstreamer blocked on pending gstreamer1 support
merge) so the use of the phonon4qt5 branch is discouraged for all uses that
do not require a build of phonon4qt5-gstreamer. To build Phonon4 with Qt5
support please use -DPHONON_BUILD_PHONON4QT5=ON. Please note that switching
the CMakeCache from libphonon to libphonon4qt5 and vice versa is not
supported, so you will need to rm CMakeCache.txt to switch.

Once phonon-gstreamer also got the change the phonon4qt5 branches will be
deleted and master is the only source for p4q5 builds then.

The previous 'five' branch was replaced with a new one that actually
constitutes what will become Phonon 5 as discussed last year in Randa.

Additionally declarative/graphicsview support is not built by default
anymore and building it is discouraged for the time being.

But apparently phonon-gstreamer doesn't build?

Yes, that's what I meant when I said that gstreamer is not yet updated ;)

I have just pushed the appropriate changes, so phonon-gstreamer should now
also build as expected when passing -DPHONON_BUILD_PHONON4QT5=ON.

This now makes all phonon4qt5 branches obsolete and deprecated; they will
be removed next week.
