      Description

      configure.exe -help says:

          -no-vcproj ......... Do not generate VC++ .vcproj files.
       *  -vcproj ............ Generate VC++ .vcproj files, only if platform
                               "win32-msvc.net"
      

      This option has always been very useful to us while building Qt 4 on Visual C++ (for both Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2010). However, it seems that the option does not have any effect anymore, with Qt 5.2.1. As I tested after unzipping qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.2.1.zip

      Is "configure.exe -help" outdated for Qt 5, or has this -vcproj feature accidentally been removed?
