@DesPetrie and @WesHildebrandt: I was able finally to build QuaZIP successfully. Unfortunately, I had to resort to using hard-coded Qt paths. Could you please tell me how you would like to handle Qt? It appears that, for the licensed version, we must run the installer. But using an installer would be unlike what we do for the other third-party libraries. Would it be acceptable to treat Qt differently? Or would you like to write a build script for open-source Qt, like we do with the other libraries? Thank you.

@surge-cmcgeorge : do you have the Qt source? The Qt getting started guide (http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/gettingstarted.html) says one of the options for installation of the framework and tools is to build the source packages directly. Would that work?
If the only version of the source is the Qt open source download, do you have any idea how much (if at all) that differs from the licensed installable binaries? I would guess that the open source version would have anything we need since the SA code relies on some older version of Qt.

My apologies Wes. I thought you were out today? Since Ed has jury duty the rest of us are putting are blockers/advice requests in Gitter today so you'd see them when you got back.

Nope, I was out Friday, but got back yesterday evening. No problem on the call; we can catch up on Gitter and the call tomorrow.
