Qt Creator for Symbian makes it very difficult to get the debug|release config type from inside the .pro file

      Description

      The modified Qt Creator in the Nokia Qt SDK uses the "-after" parameter for qmake to organize obj, moc, ui and rcc files into directories.
      E.g: qmake.exe SymbianClient.pro -r -spec symbian-abld -after OBJECTS_DIR=obj MOC_DIR=moc UI_DIR=ui RCC_DIR=rcc CONFIG+=release

      As one can see, the CONFIG type is passed as one of the -after parameters, meaning that it is not accessible from the .pro file. A Symbian pro file can't tell if it is being built as debug or as release by testing CONFIG(debug,debug|release).

      I have created a small test .pro file where I run

      for(a, CONFIG){
      message($$a)
      }

      From the Qt Creator qmake call, the output is:

      Project MESSAGE: lex
      Project MESSAGE: yacc
      Project MESSAGE: warn_on
      Project MESSAGE: debug
      Project MESSAGE: uic
      Project MESSAGE: resources
      Project MESSAGE: stl_off
      Project MESSAGE: qt
      Project MESSAGE: warn_on
      Project MESSAGE: release
      Project MESSAGE: incremental
      Project MESSAGE: debug
      Project MESSAGE: shared
      Project MESSAGE: stl
      Project MESSAGE: exceptions
      Project MESSAGE: rtti
      Project MESSAGE: incredibuild_xge
      Project MESSAGE: def_files
      Project MESSAGE: mobility

      We move the CONFIG += release before the "-after" parameter,
      e.g: qmake.exe SymbianClient.pro -r -spec symbian-abld CONFIG+=release -after OBJECTS_DIR=obj MOC_DIR=moc UI_DIR=ui RCC_DIR=rcc
      and manually run the command. The output is:

      Project MESSAGE: lex
      Project MESSAGE: yacc
      Project MESSAGE: warn_on
      Project MESSAGE: debug
      Project MESSAGE: uic
      Project MESSAGE: resources
      Project MESSAGE: stl_off
      Project MESSAGE: qt
      Project MESSAGE: warn_on
      Project MESSAGE: release
      Project MESSAGE: incremental
      Project MESSAGE: debug
      Project MESSAGE: shared
      Project MESSAGE: stl
      Project MESSAGE: exceptions
      Project MESSAGE: rtti
      Project MESSAGE: incredibuild_xge
      Project MESSAGE: def_files
      Project MESSAGE: release
      Project MESSAGE: mobility

      The bottom line is that the .pro file parsed by the Qt Creator qmake call will always think that it's in the debug configuration, even when in release.
