Source build of 32 bit Qt 5.5 on Mac os 10.7 causes error: use of unknown builtin '__builtin_bswap16' in endian_inl.h

  • I'm trying to build Qt 5.5 commercial from source because I need to use some 32 bit frameworks. So I compiled on 10.7 with XCode 4.6.3 and the OS 10.8 SDK using the following command line:

    make -platform macx-clang-32

    However I get an error as follows:

    ../../../3rdparty/libwebp/src/utils/./endian_inl.h:51:10: error: use of unknown builtin '__builtin_bswap16' [-Wimplicit-function-declaration]
    return __builtin_bswap16(x);

    Here is the full output:
