Fair enough. Given that this mixes binaries and code/docs, how about
-demosdir "/usr/lib/qt4/demos" \
-examplesdir "/usr/lib/qt4/examples" \
It would be really nice to get this added back in. I toyed with just putting
another package on of libqt4-dev / qt4-docs, but that failed due to this
compile-time configuration issue that seeps through to qmake.
