There's no WINBOOL anywhere in qtcanvas3d.

My guess is that there's header contamination and something was #defined as 
WINBOOL when moc parsed the file, but that header is missing when compiling 
with moc.

You may want to introduce an #ifndef / #undef when you find out what is defined 
as WINBOOL (probably BOOL).
