QT 5.0.2 Static Build MSVC 2010 HELP

  • Hi, I resently started using qt creator, and I have already created an application and I want to create a static build of qt so I dont have to include the dlls when running the exe.
    I have look at some tutorials about build QT statically and so far I havent gotten very far. I have tried this so far;

    • Download qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.0.2,
    • unzipped it into a folder,
    • editted qmake.config in qtbase\mkspecs\win32-msvc2010\ for static build
    • ran Visual Studio Command Prompt (2010), used cd command to change the dir to the qt source folder
    • then i ran this command configure.exe -static -release -opensource -confirm-license -opengl desktop -mp -platform win32-msvc2010

    After that It runs till it gets to a point where this erroe message is displayed;

    @Running syncqt...
    <srcbase> = C:/Qt/sourceQT5.0.2/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.0.2/qtbase
    <outbase> = C:/Qt/sourceQT5.0.2/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.0.2/qtbase
    Creating qmake...

    QMake failed!
    *** qtbase/configure exited with non-zero status.@

    I have tried other configure commands but i still get the same error.
    I don't know what to do to build qt 5.0.2 statically. ANY HELP WILL BE MUCH APPRECIATED. THANKS.
    By the way, I use the webkit in my application.
