The Fcitx5 wiki page is currently [1] unclear as to which Qt versions the fcitx5-qt package provides for. In a little research I can see that:

- Upstream docs say that Qt4 and Qt5 are enabled by default [2]; then, the PKGBUILD explicitly disables Qt4 and enables Qt6.
- The package requires Qt6 at compile time, and Qt5 at compile time and runtime.
- The package includes Qt5 and Qt6 files.
