that needs to be evaluated. If the evaluation succeeds, the feature is
included. Here is a short explanation of each option:
* -release ........... Compile and link Qt with debugging turned off.

-debug-and-release . Compile and link two versions of Qt, with and without
debugging turned on (Mac only).
