      Description

      Check out qt-5.8 and run configure.
      I used the switches -developer-build -opensource -nomake examples -nomake tests -confirm-license in a shadow build directory.
      You'll get many error message like:

      /home/qtrob/dev/src/qt-5.8.0-pre/qtbase/mkspecs/features/configure_base.prf:28: Cannot write file /config.log: Permission denied
      

      Full output attached.

      Configure should not try writing to / but use a location inside the build directory instead.
