It's probably worth pointing out what kind of errors we can expect should we forget (so that we can recognise the problem).

moc.prf with MSVC now depends on a side feature in qmake to help support
generating the moc_predefs.h file. If you're using MSVC, please remember to
recompile qmake soon.

This does not affect GCC (any OS) or the Intel compiler (any OS), as both
support the "dump macros" hidden feature. I have tested Clang but I did not
test clang-cl.

If clang-cl does not support compatibility with cl's -Bx argument, please edit
moc.prf line 34 and submit a patch.
