It is also possible to manipulate any QMAKE_* variable, to amend the values
from the mkspec for the build of Qt itself, e.g., QMAKE_CXXFLAGS+=-g3.
+Note that the *_LIBS* and QMAKE_* assignments manipulate lists, so items
+containing meta characters (spaces in particular) need to be quoted according
+to qmake rules. On top of that, the assignments as a whole need to be quoted
+according to shell rules. It is recommended to use single quotes for the inner
+quoting and double quotes for the outer quoting.
