I'm not much help here.
My only concern was building QT5 on an embedded AM335x with ti-sgx-*
libraries and update the kernel to 4.9 (bumping TI SDK from 2.0 to
There is now a kernel 4.14 (TI SDK 5.0), with only minor changes to
the ti-sgx-* libraries (support gbm_bo and GCC7).

kmscube seems to depend heavily on the mesa3d implementation, so I
don't think it's easy to make it work with the other libgbm versions.
Would building a working QT be a valid test of the libgbm build?

Note that ti-sgx-um depends on wayland, due to a library dependency on
libwayland-server.so.0 and libwayland-client.so.0  (see ldd libpvrs_WAYLAND.so)
So the dropped dependency to wayland in ti-sgx-libgbm should have been
on ti-sgx-um.
Without it, QT5 will not find any EGL backend.

So the ti-sgx-um should be adding

That way Qt5 can build with a valid EGL backend, using ti-sgx instead
of the ancient ti-gfx.
But this does nothing to help build kmscube.
