Initial import from the monolithic Qt.
This is the beginning of revision history for this module. If you want to look at revision history older than this, please refer to the Qt Git wiki for how to use Git history grafting. At the time of writing, this wiki is located here: If you have already performed the grafting and you don't see any history beyond this commit, try running "git log" with the "--follow" argument. Branched from the monolithic repo, Qt master branch, at commit 896db169ea224deb96c59ce8af800d019de63f12

+Before building the Qt library, the Qt SQL module can be enabled for
+specific databases using 'configure'. 'configure' is located at the
+top of your QTDIR.
+Specific databases drivers can be enabled using one of the following
+ ./configure [-qt-sql-<driver>] [-plugin-sql-<driver>]
+or disabled using the following option:
+ ./configure [-no-sql-<driver>]
+Where <driver> is the name of the driver, for example 'psql'. This
+will configure the Qt library to compile the specified driver into
+the Qt lib itself.
+For example, to build the PostgreSQL driver directly into the Qt
+library, configure Qt like this:
+ ./configure -qt-sql-psql
+In addition, you may need to specify an extra include path, as some
+database drivers require headers for the database they are using,
+for example:
+ ./configure -qt-sql-psql -I/usr/local/include
+If instead you need to build the PostgreSQL driver as a dynamically
+loaded plugin, configure Qt like this:
+ ./configure -plugin-sql-psql
+To compile drivers as dynamically loaded plugins, see the
+QTDIR/plugins/src/sqldrivers directory. Use 'configure -help'
+for a complete list of configure options. See the Qt documentation
+for a complete list of supported database drivers.
