Configure.exe does not support -qpa option in Qt 4.8 preview
I downloaded the Qt 4.8 preview to try the new platform abstraction (lighthouse) feature. I'm trying to build on Windows (and cross-compile for another platform) but configure.exe reports that -qpa is an "unknown option". If I build on Linux, the configure shell script recognizes -qpa as a valid option.
Is this a known limitation of configure.exe or a bug? Does anyone know of a workaround so I can configure Qt 4.8 on Windows with qpa support?
Reported as "QTBUG-20819":https://bugreports.qt.nokia.com/browse/QTBUG-20819 in case anyone cares.
bq. in case anyone cares.
We do care! Thanks for the bug report and helping making Qt even better!
The reason should be that
qpa plugin for windows platform does not yet exist

As indicated in the bug I created, I don't want to use a Windows qpa plugin. I want to cross-compile on Windows for another platform that does have a valid qpa plugin.
Does anyone know where the source for configure.exe lives? I'd be interested to see if I could fix the problem myself using the configure shell script as a reference.
