Make sure your using the 1.1 branch of Wayland and Weston, and the
stable branch of QtWayland.

By default when you compile QtWayland it will just provide you with a
QPA plugin which will allow you to run Qt applications inside a
Wayland compositor. QtWayland also contains apis to simplify creating
your own Wayland (not Weston) compositor.
