The tools affected are those that can be bootstrapped but weren't (because 
it's not a cross compilation). Since they weren't bootstrapped, they link to 
the Qt libraries being compiled, which results in the linking problem.

qmake, moc and rcc are always bootstrapped.

But uic should be suffering from this
