Improving Beginners Guide on Cross Compiling QT5

My post is about this guide: https://wiki.qt.io/RaspberryPi_Beginners_Guide
I've been wanting to get QT5 up and running on my Raspberry Pi these last couple of weeks. Initially I found a repo at http://twolife.be/raspbian/ that has QT5.2 binaries however compilation times were extremely long and the process of copying over code I made on my PC was cumbersome.
So I decided to look around to see if it was possible to cross compile easily and stumbled upon these instructions:
However, they were very much out of date with broken links and slightly confusing steps and was slightly out of date. Whilst I was trying to get things up and running I hit a few snags which I added to the article.
I've tried to improve it but it would help to have a second set of eyes since I've spent quite a bit of time trying a lot of different things, something may have slipped my mind. For instance the guide recommends ia32-libs to be installed for 64bit users but that has been replaced by a Multiarch system and I'm not sure which packages to recommend because I've been installing all sorts of packages compiling other things over the last few months.
Or does anyone have a method that completely superseded this guide.
I've put a couple of questions on the Talk page and the history page.
Let me know what you think,
