[Development] qmake bug 17533

I have been working on trying to fix 

The fix itself is really simple: Remove line 559 of 
qmake/generators/makefiledeps.cpp. But when I tried compiling Qt itself 
with the modified qmake, I got a compile error. The bug is that qmake 
doesn't set main.moc as a dependency in the makefile of the test case. 
The problem I hit in the Qt code was that there now was a different file 
that wasn't set as a dependency.

Does anyone here know this code? It feels like an area where there could 
be dragons buried. So before I spend a lot of quality time with my 
debugger, trying to fix the new problem. The question I have right now 
is if it makes sense to write a more detailed and precise parser of 
C/C++ strings in the dependency generator.

If none of you know the code or this specific area of it, I'll continue 
with the debugging and figure it out.
