Lots of things changed. The changelog for 5.5.0 contains:
   * A lot of quoting issues have been fixed. As a side effect, qmake
     has become more sensitive to over-quoted file names in project
   * qmake is now stricter about syntax errors in project files.

I don't see anything that would intentionally break your feature, so it's 
probably a side-effect of something else.

One more note: your .pro file doesn't do anything. You created an extra target 
that isn't used anywhere.
