When launching an application using Qt GUI, I get the following error:

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.

This started happening when I upgraded qt5-base from 5.3.1-1 to 5.3.2-1.
The problem seems to be that the Qt plugin library /usr/lib64/qt/plugins/platforms/ depends on which is provided by the package extra/libxkbcommon-x11. Installing libxkbcommon-x11 solved the issue.
This task depends upon
