Bug Description

The release of the QtBase module provides the new qt5-qmake-cross-armhf package and so the /usr/bin/qt5-qmake-cross-armhf binary.

This qmake binary is made for x86 chroots with armhf development target.

This change is to enable the build of qmake project type in the click chroot.

In order to support qmake projects we need this package installed in the click chroot. The qt5-qmake-cross-armhf is not a multiarch package, it is made exclusively for i386 and amd64 targets.

Ah, thanks! I'll get it from there, then!

This doesn't work from the SDK PPA either. When I try to build a project in QtCreator I get:

00:39:50: Running steps for project imaginario...

The if I go to Tools->Options->Ubuntu->Maintain (on the armhf target), and I type qmake from the chroot terminal, I get:

This bug also affects packages cross-compiled for armhf that attempt to use qmake:

$ sbuild --build=amd64 --host=armhf -d trusty myapp_1.0.dsc

Just to clarify a simple detail: the qmake support is available only from the 15.04 chroots
