qt-everywhere-src-5.11.1.zip missing configure.exe ?
Previous Qt source packages for Windows contained a configure.exe file (located in the qtbase directory), which we ran in order to build Qt. Now it appears that qt-everywhere-src-5.11.1.zip does not have this file anymore. Is the file missing, or was it intentionally left out of the source package?
Is it OK to use a configure.exe file from a previous version of Qt, for instance from Qt 5.7.1, to configure Qt 5.11.1?

I just downloaded qt-everywhere-src-5.11.1.zip , there is configure.bat in qtbase directory
Thanks, @LeLev I replaced my configure.exe call by a configure.bat call, and it appear to work :-) It even seems to support the same command line options. Except for -qt-sql-odbc, which was accepted by Qt 5.7.1 configure.exe, but rejected by Qt 5.11.1, saying
ERROR: Invalid value given for boolean command line option 'sql-odbc'.
I guess -qt-sql-odbc is just obsolete now.
AFAIK, no, it's not. However the configuration system got a revamp between 5.7 and 5.11. You should check the SQL related option using the --help option of configure.
@SGaist Thanks! Indeed, it appears helpful to compare the output from Qt 5.7.1
configure.bat -helpand Qt 5.11.1
Qt 5.7.1 said:
-no-sql-<driver> ... Disable SQL <driver> entirely, by default none are turned on. -qt-sql-<driver> ... Enable a SQL <driver> in the Qt Library. -plugin-sql-<driver> Enable SQL <driver> as a plugin to be linked to at run time. Available values for <driver>: mysql psql oci odbc tds db2 sqlite sqlite2 ibase (drivers marked with a '+' have been detected as available on this system) -system-sqlite ..... Use sqlite from the operating system.
Whereas Qt 5.11.1 says:
Database options: -sql-<driver> ........ Enable SQL <driver> plugin. Supported drivers: db2 ibase mysql oci odbc psql sqlite2 sqlite tds [all auto] -sqlite .............. Select used sqlite3 [system/qt]
I guess that means that I don't need to explicitly switch on sql-odbc anymore, as it already appears enabled by default, with Qt 5.11.1. :-)
