Cannot install Qt 5.9.1 on OS X

  • I cannot install Qt 5.9.1 on OS X 10.9.5.
    Tried with both the online installation (see previous question: "Unified installer does not work") and the offline one.
    With the offline installer it takes a long time to verify the app binary (15 minutes), the OS then asks weather I am sure I want to open an app downloaded from the Internet, the installer opens and an error dialog is shown for less than a second, then the app crashes with the error message: "qt-opensource-mac-x64-5.9.1 quit unexpectedly."

    This is a summary of the error report (at the end I describe what happens when running as sudo):
