as mentioned in several places before. Harbour QA started on 07. Jan 
2015 to accept submissions which depend on:

libssl.so.10
libcrypto.so.10


Unfortunately libqmfclient5.so.1 is not yet among the allowed libraries. 
There are API changes coming up and the library is not widely requested, 
so it does not have high priority to be allowed in Harbour soon.
