A minimal example illustrating the issue is a great idea.  However,
the problem is I am not much of an expert on C++ or Qt5 so reducing
the PLplot Qt5 example source code to such a minimal example is going
to be somewhat time consuming for me.  So unless someone here lends me
a hand by implementing the needed simple Qt5 source code, I first plan
to look through the many Qt5 demos accessible on the web to see if any
of them qualify in terms of no Q_OBJECT in source, but Q_OBJECT in
#included header, and as a last resort I will attempt to simplify the
PLplot Qt5 example source code. Then follow up with implementing the
CMake aspects of that simple example which should be trivial for me.
