Completely lost trying to get QMYSQL working on OS X

QSqlDatabase: QMYSQL driver not loaded
QSqlDatabase: available drivers: QSQLITE QMYSQL QMYSQL3 QODBC QODBC3 QPSQL QPSQL7
this is the error I get when I run my application. I am on OS X. Installing SQL drivers appears to be a painful task and a poorly documented one. From the QT site:
cd $QTDIR/src/plugins/sqldrivers/mysql qmake "INCLUDEPATH+=/usr/local/include" "LIBS+=-L/usr/local/lib -lmysqlclient_r" mysql.pro make
$QTDIR is not only not defined, but this directory doesn't even exist. This is the closest I could find:
And it is filled with dylibs for all the installed drivers.
The instructions above on the QT website are confusing, I do not understand what I am supposed to do. Could anyone provide me with step by step instructions on how to get this driver working?
Hi and welcome to devnet,
You need to first install Qt's sources, and then execute the qmake/make commands from there.
