That's a private Qt header. If you have an installed Qt / a Qt with a install prefix that is not the source directory, you need to point Qt Creator's build to where the private headers are by setting the qmake variable QT_PRIVATE_HEADERS, e.g.

qmake -r QT_PRIVATE_HEADERS="/home/me/where/qt/buildtree/is/include" && make
