Yes, I can. 4.8.3 is broken and cannot be used to compile projects
relying on information from mkspecs/qconfig.pri, for example QtCreator.

The problem is that mkspecs/qconfig.pri (which contains the definitions
for QT_VERSION and alike) is not included due to a broken path for
qconfig.pri in mkspecs/features/qt_config.pri, caused by an invalid
QT_BUILD_TREE path set in mkspecs/features/device_config.pri.
This has been fixed in , but the fix is not part of v4.8.3.
The fix can be manually applied to an existing installation by patching
mkspecs/features/device_config.pri as seen in , but as long as this
change won't be in v4.8.3, 4.8.3 remains broken.
