How does it break? What is broken?

Could you please create an item on bugreport, so that we can properly handle this.

I found the reason - it's

DESTDIR = ../bin

in my pro files.

Using DESTDIR breaks UWP configuration.

Is it a bug? What can be done here as I would like to use DESTDIR?

Well, you still need to also recompile all your DLLs against the UWP build of Qt. Note that there are dependencies being forwarded on Windows, meaning that ie. once you link against a WinRT-build QtCore, you will have different dependencies in your DLL as well.
