I am building qt 5.15.1 on windows /VC++2015/64-bit build. The debug shadow
build seems to run the nmake to build fine, but while running the install
rule, i get the error

-install qinstall -exe
Error copying
C:\sdk\src\qt-everywhere-src-5.15.1\shadow_dbg\qtbase\qmake\qmake.exe to
C:\sdk\apps\qt-5.15.1\bin\qmake.exe: Cannot open
C:\sdk\src\qt-everywhere-src-5.15.1\shadow_dbg\qtbase\qmake\qmake.exe for

As you can see, the previous command shows that qmake.exe is in qtbase\bin,
but the install command is looking for it in qtbase\qmake. Nowhere in the
whole build log is qmake copied at that path. What could i be missing?

I reused a script used to compile 5.12, so i doubt i forgot to run a build
