So you are saying that profiles are something similar with qtc kits, right?
I didn't find a tool that I can use to set "qbs.platform" to a profile.
I added to my qbs profiles qt5 for android but when I tried to compile/link
qsb is using my host gcc, which of course is incompatible with arm libs :)
A little more information on this matter will be very appreciated :)
