      Description

      It seems not possible to build Qt for iOS from sources, both on 5.9.0 release and 5.9.1 snapshot from 13-06.

      Sources were downloaded with maintenance tool, build was tested on Yosemite (Xcode 7.2.1 Build version 7C1002) and on a fresh Sierra install (Xcode 8.3.3 Build version 8E3004b)

      The command was (and respective for 5.9.0):

      sudo ./configure -prefix /Developer/qt/5.9.1/ios -xplatform macx-ios-clang -release -shared -nomake examples -nomake tests -opensource -confirm-license && sudo make -j 4 && sudo make -j 4 install

      With 5.9.0 I get:

      Undefined symbols for architecture armv7:
       "_CFArrayAppendValue", referenced from:
       QCoreTextFontDatabase::populateFontDatabase() in libQt5FontDatabaseSupport.a(qcoretextfontdatabase.o)
       QCoreTextFontDatabase::addApplicationFont(QByteArray const&, QString const&) in libQt5FontDatabaseSupport.a(qcoretextfontdatabase.o)
       "_CFArrayContainsValue", referenced from:
       getFontDescription(__CTFontDescriptor const*, FontDescription*) in libQt5FontDatabaseSupport.a(qcoretextfontdatabase.o)
       "_CFArrayCreateMutable", referenced from:
       QCoreTextFontDatabase::addApplicationFont(QByteArray const&, QString const&) in libQt5FontDatabaseSupport.a(qcoretextfontdatabase.o)
       (...continued...)
       ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture armv7
       clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)
       make[5]: *** [../../../../plugins/platforms/libqminimal.dylib] Error 1

       

      With 5.9.1snap I get (the same error for armv7, this message was the result from removing armv7 from mkspec for testing):

      Undefined symbols for architecture armv7:
         "_OBJC_CLASS_$_NSData", referenced from:
             objc-class-ref in qmacfunctions.o
         "_objc_msgSend", referenced from:
             QtMac::toNSData(QByteArray const&) in qmacfunctions.o
             QtMac::fromNSData(NSData const*) in qmacfunctions.o
             QtMac::setApplicationIconBadgeNumber(int) in qmacfunctions_ios.o
             QtMac::applicationIconBadgeNumber() in qmacfunctions_ios.o
       ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture armv7
       clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)
       make[3]: *** [../../lib/QtMacExtras.framework/QtMacExtras] Error 1

      The error messages are identical on Yosemite and Sierra.
