The default for configure --enable-qt-help defaults is auto. However, you
appear to building directly on a production system and I suspect you have some
Qt package installed on the system which then means the build enables qt-help.

To get a standard build you should use a build chroot (pbuilder, sbuild,

Doing that, the configure stage includes

checking for qhelpgenerator... no
checking for qhelpgenerator-qt5... no

the qt help files are not attempted and the build succeeds.

Can you attach the failing build log without qhelpgenerator-qt5 installed?
