The Qt developers are vehemently opposed to LibreSSL and there are
serious hacks to the SSL code inside Qt to make it work with LibreSSL.

This vehement opposition probably has something to do with the
harassment brought on them by droves of LibreSSL-advocating trolls,
for example: http://lists.qt-project.org/pipermail/interest/2015-November/019750.html
