There is a missing dependency for qt5-base: libxkbcommon-x11.
$ ldd /usr/lib/qt/plugins/platforms/ | grep -i found => not found
Qt5-based apps simply doesn't run at all.
Installing package libxkbcommon-x11 by hands fixes this problem with qt5 apps.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
qt5-base 5.3.0-3
xcb-util 0.3.9-1
libxcb 1.10-2

Steps to reproduce:
1. $ yaourt -S tox-qt-git
2. $ tox-qt
This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb".

Available platform plugins are: eglfs, kms, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, xcb.

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

It's there:
libxkbcommon-x11 (optional) - xcb plugin

If your package needs it specifically, add the dep there.
