If you have static information, then you might get away with using the sdktool.
That's a binary used by the Qt installer to register things with Qt creator. The
sdktool is basically a very thin command line wrapper used to create the
necessary XML files in a installation wide place.

I recommend configuring a kit in Creator via the UI and then checking the .xml
file for the values you need. sdktool --help should get you started with the
command line.

For more dynamic configuration you will currently need to use C++ code.

Best Regards,
