Now this is happening on Linux too:

$ ls
bin           config.status   examples  lib       plugins  src
config.cache  config.summary  imports   Makefile  qmake    tests
config.opt    config.tests    include   mkspecs   qml      translations

$ ./config.status -recheck-all -v

Preparing build tree...
<srcbase> = /home/tjmaciei/src/qt/qt5/qtbase 
<outbase> = /home/tjmaciei/obj/qt/qt5/qtbase 
Creating qmake...
gmake: Nothing to be done for 'first'.

Qt is now configured for building. Just run 'gmake'.
Once everything is built, Qt is installed.
You should not run 'gmake install'.

Prior to reconfiguration, make sure you remove any leftovers from
the previous build.


If I run with sh -x, I see this:
+ /home/tjmaciei/obj/qt/qt5/qtbase/bin/qmake -qtconf /home/tjmaciei/obj/qt/
qt5/qtbase/bin/qt.conf /home/tjmaciei/src/qt/qt5/qtbase -- -prefix /home/
tjmaciei/obj/qt/qt5/qtbase -opensource -confirm-license -developer-build -
system-libjpeg -system-libpng -reduce-relocations -xcb -pch -platform linux-g+
+-optimised -system-sqlite -journald -qt-xkbcommon-x11 -dbus-runtime -
qtlibinfix .t -nomake tests -nomake examples -sctp -recheck-all

I've run that command manually and it exits with status 0. I've attached the 
-d -d output if anyone can help me figure out why it won't configure.
