The snapshot online docs from the doc team don't have as many missing links, so I'm guessing that there's either still something missing from the black magic in mksrc.sh or that its an offline versus online docs problem.

Hmm, there seems to be a difference somewhere, I'm getting 220 extra qdoc errors when running "qch_docs".
Also the command for qhelpgenerator does not work by default (probably we should use something different than "$${Qt.help.bins} to find qhelpgenerator).

I will investigate.
