      Description

      Configuring Qt for the raspberry pi in 5.12.0 used to successfully compile:

      config.tests/egl-brcm

      and enable the associated functionality. This config test is not even touched in Qt 5.12.1

      Turns out:

       

              "bcm_host": {                                                                                                         
                  "export": "",                                                                                                     
                  "sources": [                                                                                                      
                      "-lbcm_host"                                                                                                  
                  ]                                                                                                                 
              }, 
      
      

       

      now barfs with:

       

      Trying source 0 (type inline) of library bcm_host ...                                                                         
      None of [libbcm_host.so libbcm_host.a] found in [] and global paths.                                                          
       => source produced no result.          

      Which makes sense as bcm_host lives in a discrete noncentral path, and we used to allow mkspecs to provide arbitrary link magic.

      This is clearly not isolated to the egl-brcm config.test and must be giving anyone who tracks Qt patch releases (something I used to advocate) a really bad day.
