thanks for pointing it out. It seems that qt5.git/configure in the dev branch is broken (or has changed behavior).

The configure script in all its beauty is:

./configure -prefix /home/qt-project/install -debug -opensource -confirm-license -no-pch
make -j 4

qt-project at Qt-Coverity:~/coverity/qt5$ make
cd qtbase/ && ( test -e Makefile || /home/qt-project/coverity/qt5/qtbase/bin/qmake -o Makefile /home/qt-project/coverity/qt5/qtbase/qtbase.pro -qtconf /home/qt-project/coverity/qt5/qtbase/bin/qt.conf -- -prefix /home/qt-project/coverity/qt5/qtbase -opensource ) && make -f Makefile
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/qt-project/coverity/qt5/qtbase'
cd src/ && ( test -e Makefile || /home/qt-project/coverity/qt5/qtbase/bin/qmake -o Makefile /home/qt-project/coverity/qt5/qtbase/src/src.pro -qtconf /home/qt-project/coverity/qt5/qtbase/bin/qt.conf -- -prefix /home/qt-project/coverity/qt5/qtbase -opensource ) && make -f Makefile

Cannot read /home/qt-project/coverity/qt5/qtbase/src/gui/qtgui-config.pri: No such file or directory

qt5.git is at 2fb27862aa760d88790b23e0eab3cd3be5341054

Is this a known problem? How should the configure be changed?
