I have my build directories inside subsurface sources, but I think someone
said that they should actually be at the same level. The only time when the
build directory under the Subsurface source dir has bitten me has been when
I reset the sources back to what is on git, getting rid of all the extra
files I have created there (then the build directories are also deleted).

Some libraries are only available for qt4 on my Ubuntu 14.04 box, so that
is why I use qmake-qt4. If you have all the required libs for qt5, then
just go ahead and use that. BTW, it does look like the Marble on 14.10 is
compiled against qt4.
