I found a right alpine package [1] but it installs `qmake-qt5` executable nut my package expects it to be just `qmake` (Ubuntu and others have it that way). Should I fix my package somehow to support this location or should I use some system-wide utility to update paths (like update-alternatives on Debian-based distros)?

We currently don't have any update-alternatives feature in Alpine so
you will have to fix your package to support the location.

You can either call qmake-qt5 directly or set
PATH="/usr/lib/qt5/bin:$PATH" so /usr/lib/qt5/bin/qmake is found.
