Yes, this is obvious, I was referring to the .pro processing :)

I see, thanks for the explanation.
qmake's documentation for CONFIG=ordered is a bit vague :
"When using the subdirs template, this option specifies that the
directories listed should be processed in the order in which they are
This is clearly not happening if "directory processing" also involves
recursive qmake invocation inside those dirs. In this case, this
should be considered a qmake bug IMHO.
For a (non-hackish) workaround, what about running 'qmake -recursive'
at the end of configure?
