What's wrong with a plain old .bat file, or even an NMAKE .mak file? Ship two files, debug.bat and release.bat, and call it good.
It is best to leave project-file creation up to individual users, in my opinion. MS changes their IDEs and project-file formats more often than most people change their underwear. The odds that any given open-source project will actually compile without any tweaking are basically zero anyway, so you might as well make the build steps as clear and obvious as possible.

qmake is just insanely limited in terms of the structure of your code

I've had way too many cases where it just "forgot" to recompile files
when a header file changed (causing strange segfaults) that I'm never
trusting it anymore.
Ahh good to know!
I'll steer clear of it from now on then.
I wasn't ever that fond of it to begin with, but from the experiences I have had with it, it's more pleasant to use than dealing with MS project files (granted, I was staying away from Windows for that project anyway).
