[Interest] qmake, executable & static libs...

Hi guys,

I'm porting Qt 5 application to Linux and ran into a problem of linking.

This application depends on two external static libs (let's say libs A 
and B). But this libs is in the tree of the project.

And this project depends on two yet internal static libs (let's say libs 
C and D). Libs C and D depends on libs A and B.

All static libs creates successfully.

But executable can't link. I have added all 4 static libs ( A,B,C,D ) to 
the project of executable ( link rules, pretarget deps...)

And ld says when linking executable that in static lib C there are 
undefined references to functions and methods from static lib A.

What should I do in .pro files to solve this problem.

P.S. On windows with MSVC linking is successful.
