      Description

      When cross compiling for a windows target on a unix host, build of idc fails.

      Reason: idc is a windows-only tool, it requires windows but in qtactiveqt/src/tools/idc/idc.pro the first line is:

      option(host_build)

      This line is wrong, please remove it!

      So, idc must be built on the target (windows) platform, not on the host platform.

      I removed this line, then successfully cross-compiled "qtactiveqt" on Ubuntu 13.10 Linux, but faild in directory test (so I ended up with option "-skip qtactiveqt").
