A system call fails to be correctly parsed when the instruction to be passed to the shell contains more than just a trivial command; pipe and dot-comma are examples of items that cause the parsing to fail (qmake however executes correctly.)
var = $$system( command )
var = $$system( command1 | command2 )
var = $$system( command1 ; command2 )
Are you sure thats really what you've got in your .pro file? The above works here with a bugfix I have for 144377 and 144987. I will commit that one later today to svn. I'll cc this BR so you can then retry wether it also fixed your problems with the system command.
SVN commit 660991 by apaku:
Fix a few parser issues:
1. Correctly parse 1-character-long variable values
2. Don't choke on multiline-values that don't have whitespace at the beginning of the line
3. Allow EOF at the end of a variable assignment, instead of just newline

M +27 -0 qmake.yy
M +124 -119 qmake_lex.cpp
M +183 -142 qmake_yacc.cpp
M +3 -2 qmake_yacc.hpp
I can confirm that an svn export of 04/Apr/07, 14h00, solved this problem as well. Thanks for the patches, I'll set this as resolved.
