I created a "Qt Console" project and took a look at the Include paths and the difference that I found was that in the listing there is the following:

/System/Library/Frameworks (framework path)
/Library/Frameworks (framework path)
/Users/Shared/Toolkits/Qt-5.3.1/lib (framework path)

where-as in my CMake based project those same directories are listed as:
/System/Library/Frameworks (framework path)
/Library/Frameworks (framework path)
/Users/Shared/Toolkits/Qt-5.3.1/lib (include path)

So there is the difference. Where can I tweak a setting in the .cbp file to entice QtCreator to load those paths as "framework" paths? This would at least let me figure out where the problem needs to be corrected (If it ever will be).
