Building Qt 5.6 on windows from git -- missing modules
I've been trying to build QT from the git repo and it does not build the sub modules.
I've followed the instructions on https://wiki.qt.io/Building_Qt_5_from_Git
and it's not working for me.
When trying to build a specific modules with nmake module-qtdeclarative I get
NMAKE : fatal error U1073: don't know how to make 'module-qtdeclarative'
I'm doing a shadow build.
these are my QTVars

@CALL "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat" amd64

Is there anything I'm missing?
By the way it builds OK when I download the source as a zip file.
I just did a build using the zip archive for 5.6.1 and most of the modules are missing.
I was running config from qtcore and nor the project root!
