$ ls
$ cat configure.cache

Then I configure:

$ cmd \ /c /c/Qt/qt5/qtbase/configure.bat -redo
Please wait while bootstrapping configure ...
<srcbase> = C:/Qt/qt5/qtbase
<outbase> = C:/Qt/qt5-msvc2015-x64/qtbase
[syncqt runs]

jom 1.1.0 - empower your cores

[configure.exe compiles]
        mt.exe -nologo -manifest "configure.intermediate.manifest" -

This is the Qt for Windows Open Source Edition.

Running syncqt...
<srcbase> = C:/Qt/qt5/qtbase
<outbase> = C:/Qt/qt5-msvc2015-x64/qtbase
Creating qmake...

jom 1.1.0 - empower your cores

[qmake.exe compiles]

        copy qmake.exe ..\bin\qmake.exe
        1 file(s) copied.
Info: creating cache file C:\Qt\qt5-msvc2015-x64\qtbase\.qmake.cache


Then I'm back at the prompt. There was no configuration. There is no mkspecs/
qconfig.pri and no mkspecs/qmodule.pri. Trying to compile produces error. I 
can't figure out *what* should be running the configure tests, where they are 
called from, much less why nothing is happening.
