      Description

      i've been experimenting with the qml type compiler, trying to integrate it into cmake. i'm using statically linked qt and build the qml module (and plugin) as static libraries:

      something like:

      add_library(MyModule STATIC ...)
      
      qt_add_qml_module(
          MyModule
          PLUGIN_TARGET MyPlugin
          )
      
      qt6_target_compile_qml_to_cpp(MyModule ...)
      

      this gives me an automoc error, because `MyModule_autogen/timestamp` depends on headers, which are generated by qmltc. this seems to be an issue on clean rebuilds, as i've mainly seen this on clean buildserver builds.

      i can obviously work around this by not using my static library as backing target for the module:

      add_library(MyLib STATIC ...)
      
      qt_add_qml_module(
          MyModule
          PLUGIN_TARGET MyModule
          )
      
      qt6_target_compile_qml_to_cpp(MyModule ...)
      target_link_libraries(MyLib PUBLIC MyModule)
      

      but i wonder if there is a way to catch this error early (e.g. raise a cmake error in qt6_target_compile_qml_to_cpp when the backing target is a separate static library)
