Please always make environment variables persistent if you override them.
You can do this by either editing your
$HOME/.profile on macOS or Linux.
Don't forget to run
source $HOME/.bash_profile or
source $HOME/.profile afterwards.
On Windows you can simply use the advanced system settings or
setx NAME "VALUE".
Don't forget to restart the command prompt to get the new environment variables.
General environment variables
You usually won't need to override these, only if you install Qt in a custom location or if you want to test a different version of Qt.

|QT_DEBUG||false||bool||set this to
|QT_DEBUG_CONSOLE||false||bool||set this to
|QT_STUB||false||bool||can be set to
|QT_QMAKE_DIR||string||can be used to make use of custom versions of Qt|
Go 1.10.x specific environment variables (newer and older versions should not be affected)

go build or
go run to work
CGO_CFLAGS_ALLOW=".*" CGO_CXXFLAGS_ALLOW=".*" CGO_LDFLAGS_ALLOW=".*"
Now that you are done with the environment variables you can start with the installation:
