Yes the commercial version.
Here are the configure options
configure -commercial -opengl desktop -confirm-license -no-icu 
-no-vcproj -nomake examples -nomake tests

>> What .pri file are you talking about?

There is a qt_lib_designer_private.pri in folder qtbase\mkspecs\modules 
and you can find it enclosed.
We compile using QCreator qbs plugin, perhaps it comes from that.

Many thanks for you help.
To workaround we are now compiling using prefix dans it works fine so 
this is now not so a big issue on our side.
