How to describe an additionnal build step in the .pro file

  • I would like to know if there is a way to describe addtionnal build steps in the .pro file.

    A simple example:

    • My project file is defining the INSTALLS variable
    • For this variable to be taken in consideration I need an additionnal build step "make install"
    • The .pro file is part of the git repository, the .pro.user file not.
    • So everytime I check out the project again, I need to specify the addtionnal build step again

    Therefore I am lokking for a way to describe this additionnal build step in the .pro file, so that it is getting created automatically each time someone clones the project.

    Sadly I dont think its possible to do via .pro file.
    I wanted the same and could not find any automatic way.
