      Description

      I’ve built a static version of Qt 5 RC 1, but all of the applications I build, including the Qt examples, will immediately quit with the following message:
      Failed to load platform plugin "xcb". Available platforms are:

      The program has unexpectedly finished.

      Here’s the configure call I used to build:
      ./configure -release -static -opensource -nomake examples -nomake tests -qt-xcb

      My issue looked similar to QTBUG-24496 which suggested adding the following to main.cpp:
      #include <QtCore/QtPlugin>
      ...
      Q_IMPORT_PLUGIN(QXcbIntegrationPlugin)

      but that just results in the following link error:
      undefined reference to `qt_static_plugin_QXcbIntegrationPlugin()’
