We have a system with over 1000 Makefiles, many that call others to build the entire system. When the Makefile finds a dot pro file it invokes the qmake then invokes the regular make. I suppose it would be possible to write more scripts to be activated after the qmake is complete and remove said option. It would be much better to stop it at the source. It would be even better if that option were emitted only when needed. We may not be able to obtain that control but I am searching.
