[Qt-creator] 'Custom' projects and Kits

I'm using the 'custom' project manager in QtCreator for a project with
a, well, custom buildsystem and just realized that the information
provided through the Qt version selected for a Kit does not propagate
into the C++ parser used by QtCreator.

I wonder wether this is intentional/by design since the only way I'm
aware of to configure the include directories that QtCreator uses for
the parser would be the project.includes file in the project
directory. However for the Qt header locations that file is not
suitable as it resides inside the source directory of the project (at
least by default) and hence must not include paths that are different
for each build.

Or am I overlooking a way to tell QtCreator the locations of the Qt
headers per build directory that I have configured?

I'm still using 3.6.1 so just tell me if I should just shut up and update :)
