But how? Configure now yells on -no-pulseaudio :
>> ERROR: Unknown command line option '-no-pulseaudio'.

And that error comes from qmake, possibly because it doesn't know this option 
when processing qtbase.pro (and that it needs to be instructed to cache unknown 
options for later perusal)?

I tried "-no-feature-pulseaudio", which leads to
ERROR: Enabling/Disabling unknown feature 'pulseaudio'.

(at least the option is recognised).

Corresponding to `configure -redo -recheck-all`. I missed the "recheck-all" 
option, thanks.
