Thanks Thiago,

I was afraid of that.
For now I have the following in my project file:


Just out of curiosity:
How does the Linux side know which version to link to, I am assuming this
is then a feature of gcc/make and not qmake?
I can't see that my dependent lib knows the version of the base lib because
the VERSION variable is set in the PRO file, but my dependent lib links
against the PRI file that does not contain this information. It is then
probably because I normally build them together?
If it is not qmake related then I understand if you do not have more
information on this.
