If you plan to do some debugging, you'll need to compile debug version of Qt:
C:\Qt\4.8.0\bin\qtvars.bat compile_debug
C:\Qt\5.9.1\bin\qtvars.bat compile_debug

Note: there is a problem when compiling debug version of Qt 4.7, the script ends with
this message "mingw32-make: *** No rule to make target `debug'. Stop.". To
compile the debug version you have to go out of src directory and execute the
following command:

```
c:\Qt\4.8.0 make
c:\Qt\5.9.1 make
```
