qt-devel (or /usr/bin/qmake, which would only break if qmake were
moved to a different bin directory).

You would either insert your prebuilt Makefile as a %patch or include
it as a %{SOURCEx} file. The ugly thing about a prebuilt Makefile most
likely will be that it contains hardcoded paths (to programs,
libraries and headers), which would increase the maintenance
requirements.
