Unable to build OCI plugin

I followed as per documentation :
C:\Qt\5.15.2\msvc2019_64\plugins\sqldrivers>qmake -- OCI_INCDIR=D:\OracleHome\dbhomeXE\oci\include OCI_LIBDIR=D:\OracleHome\dbhomeXE\oci\lib\msvc
and the output is :
Usage: qmake [mode] [options] [files] QMake has two modes, one mode for generating project files based on some heuristics, and the other for generating makefiles. Normally you shouldn't need to specify a mode, as makefile generation is the default mode for qmake, but you may use this to test qmake on an existing project Mode: -project Put qmake into project file generation mode In this mode qmake interprets [files] as files to be added to the .pro file. By default, all files with known source extensions are added. Note: The created .pro file probably will need to be edited. For example add the QT variable to specify what modules are required. -makefile Put qmake into makefile generation mode (default) In this mode qmake interprets files as project files to be processed, if skipped qmake will try to find a project file in your current working directory Warnings Options: -Wnone Turn off all warnings; specific ones may be re-enabled by later -W options -Wall Turn on all warnings -Wparser Turn on parser warnings -Wlogic Turn on logic warnings (on by default) -Wdeprecated Turn on deprecation warnings (on by default) Options: * You can place any variable assignment in options and it will be * * processed as if it was in [files]. These assignments will be * * processed before [files] by default. * -o file Write output to file -d Increase debug level -t templ Overrides TEMPLATE as templ -tp prefix Overrides TEMPLATE so that prefix is prefixed into the value -help This help -v Version information -early All subsequent variable assignments will be parsed right before default_pre.prf -before All subsequent variable assignments will be parsed right before [files] (the default) -after All subsequent variable assignments will be parsed after [files] -late All subsequent variable assignments will be parsed right after default_post.prf -norecursive Don't do a recursive search -recursive Do a recursive search -set <prop> <value> Set persistent property -unset <prop> Unset persistent property -query <prop> Query persistent property. Show all if <prop> is empty. -qtconf file Use file instead of looking for qt.conf -cache file Use file as cache [makefile mode only] -spec spec Use spec as QMAKESPEC [makefile mode only] -nocache Don't use a cache file [makefile mode only] -nodepend Don't generate dependencies [makefile mode only] -nomoc Don't generate moc targets [makefile mode only] -nopwd Don't look for files in pwd [project mode only]
Now IDK what parameters I'm missing , when i tried to build for mysql it showed the same output, but anyhow I managed to to work with mysql (I didn't actually build, I copied them into source from somewhere I downloaded).
So what am I doing wrong?
@vantablack Try to specify the pro file explicetly.
Also, you should not build inside source tree. It is better to create a build folder and call qmake and build there:
mkdir build_oci cd build_oci qmake C:\Qt\5.15.2\msvc2019_64\plugins\sqldrivers\NAMEOFPROFILE.pro OCI_INCDIR=D:\OracleHome\dbhomeXE\oci\include OCI_LIBDIR=D:\OracleHome\dbhomeXE\oci\lib\msvc make make install

It gave me :
Project ERROR: Cannot run compiler 'cl'. Output: =================== =================== Maybe you forgot to setup the environment?
@vantablack If you want to use Microsoft compiler you have to start their developer console (not sure how exactly it is called, should be in Visual Studio entry in start menu). Or you use the one from your Qt installation. This is needed to prepare the environment before building. See https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/windows-building.html for more details.
Additionally to @jsulm, you first need download the Qt sources. Currently you are running that in your Qt installation.
