Here are some initial observations. I haven't reviewed all the packages
on your list in detail; rather, I tried to build all of the LXQt meta
package, and found some issues that overlap with your list.

Some packages fail to build in a sandboxed bulk build environment, e.g.
libfm-qt and qterminal:

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:35 (find_package):
  By not providing "FindQt5LinguistTools.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH
  project has asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided
  "Qt5LinguistTools", but CMake did not find one.

  Could not find a package configuration file provided by
  (requested version 5.7.1) with any of the following names:


  Add the installation prefix of "Qt5LinguistTools" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH
  set "Qt5LinguistTools_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above
  files.  If "Qt5LinguistTools" provides a separate development package
  SDK, be sure it has been installed.

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

These simply need
TOOL_DEPENDS+=  qt5-qttools-[0-9]*:../../x11/qt5-qttools
added, as some related packages already have.

I don't think INSTALLATION_DIRS is really required in these packages?

While I don't think this is a huge deal, the preferred practice with
patches sent upstream is to add URL references in the patch comments so
others can cross-reference if need be.

(Given I contributed to packaging qtermwidget and qterminal, I should
probably recuse myself from any review of them, except to say I never
finished looking into some details about the patch I shared with you
for qtermwidget. I guess I should do that.)

Do you intend to submit the rest of the LXQt desktop components for
review later? There are related and unrelated issues I've found with
them, which we could discuss separately. For instance, lxqt-panel
doesn't build for me because it expects the presence of
audio/pulseaudio, which isn't a declared dependency.

Anyway, you may already have others lined up to help with this, but I
can assist with the commits if need be. I'd have to look at the rest
of your list. Thanks for working on this!
