There are several build systems out there. Autotools (what you
describe) is one of them, qmake is another. There is no special
preference over autotools anywhere, just the examples you may find may
refer to autotools because it's a popular build system.
Adapting an autotools example to qmake should be easy, btw. Just
replace "configure" with "qmake-qt4" and adjust its options. You can
have a look at other packages that use qmake, for example kaboom, to
use as a reference.

Adrian already answered to that, it's your choice.
