I've also been talking since the beginning about configure. Sorry about the 
confusion. That configure script is obfuscated enough to make it very easy to 
miss the fact it chdirs back up 1 level (after the toplevel configure script did 
the opposite).

The fact remains that it's qmake that complains about unknown arguments when I 
pass -no-pulseaudio and/or -no-gstreamer.

Let me try to reformulate the question: what options must I pass to
../qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.8.0-rc/configure so that the qtmultimedia 
component is built without pulseaudio and gstreamer support? I'm doing an out-
of-source build, hence the "../qt*".
