There isn't. Starting debugging from the command line is meant as an 
ad-hoc mechanism for testing. "Normal" debugging typically requires
a kit and a project. This does not have to be properly set up for building
and deployment, but should at least list the project's source. A 'dummy 
project' created by 'qmake -project' is often sufficient.
