Can you paste the results of "egrep '^(QT|MOC|UIC|LREL|RCC)' Makefile" in the build directory? Do you have a config.cache file left over from a previous build? Have you recently installed or uninstalled any Qt related packages? Did you intend to build Octave with Qt 5, and do you have the qttools5-dev-tools packages installed?
