A year and a half late, but if could be of use for anyone. There are two sets:

emerge -av @qt5-essentials @qt5-addons

for the qt overlay, ofc

Yes, this is what is exactly expected for those dais. –  proofit404 Apr 21 '14 at 5:49

As with any other package, you need to "emerge" the ones you want.

This seems rather easy to me, so maybe you're not quite asking what you actually mean?

What package I need to emerge? There is no qt-meta for 5.9999 version. Emerge Qt module by module is an ugly way I think. –  proofit404 Nov 19 '12 at 6:33
You emerge the modules you want. That's how it works. –  Nikos C. Nov 19 '12 at 6:38
Thanks, I understand now. –  proofit404 Nov 19 '12 at 6:53
@NikosC. You know, Qt5 is not in portage yet, don't you? –  vertoe Jun 2 '13 at 17:55
@donschoe In the question it is mentioned that he did layman -a qt, so he has the qt overlay active, which does provide the Qt5 ebuilds. –  Nikos C. Jun 2 '13 at 21:35
