Please keep Qt 5 development discussions to the dev mailing list.

That error means that QtGui's .pro file (gui.pro) has QT += gui, which makes no 
sense. QtGui cannot link to QtGui. That would be an interesting variation of 
the chicken-and-the-egg: the older chicken depends on the young chick. Or 
something along those lines....

Check if someone added that by accident. It's unlikely.

If that isn't the case, use qmake -d -d and analyse the output to see where 
that "gui" came from. More than likely, qmake read some other file it wasn't 
supposed to.
