Ok, now I need QNX help from build

In the build, the log says:
 -- Performing Test HAVE_sysv_shm
 -- Performing Test HAVE_sysv_shm - Failed
 -- Performing Test HAVE_sysv_sem
 -- Performing Test HAVE_sysv_sem - Failed
 -- Performing Test HAVE_posix_shm
 -- Performing Test HAVE_posix_shm - Success
 -- Performing Test HAVE_posix_sem
 -- Performing Test HAVE_posix_sem - Success

which is the expected condition. This should have triggered the macro 
QT_POSIX_IPC, given configure.cmake:

    CONDITION TEST_posix_shm AND TEST_posix_sem AND (
        FEATURE_ipc_posix OR (APPLE AND QT_FEATURE_appstore_compliant)
        OR NOT (TEST_sysv_shm AND TEST_sysv_sem)
qt_feature_definition("ipc_posix" "QT_POSIX_IPC")

And yet, when tst_qsharedmemory started, it printed the debug message:

QDEBUG : tst_QSharedMemory::initTestCase() Default key type is 
QNativeIpcKey::Type::SystemV and legacy key type is 

Both key types should have been POSIX, given:

    static constexpr Type DefaultTypeForOs =
#ifdef Q_OS_WIN
#elif !defined(QT_POSIX_IPC)

inline auto QNativeIpcKey::legacyDefaultTypeForOs() noexcept -> Type
#if defined(Q_OS_WIN)
    return Type::Windows;
#elif defined(QT_POSIX_IPC)
    return Type::PosixRealtime;
#elif defined(Q_OS_DARWIN)
    return defaultTypeForOs_internal();
    return Type::SystemV;

But neither is, which tells me that QT_POSIX_IPC wasn't defined. What's 

Maybe it got defined but not added to qconfig.h? I changed the conditions for 
the feature, but not anything else, so it should have remained public (and I 
did make a local test stting FEATURE_ipc_posix).

This time, it can't be a missing #include. qtipccommon.h includes qglobal.h, 
which includes qtconfigmacros.h, which includes qconfig.h and qtcore-config.h.
