it appears the Qt Creator (1.3, on WIndows Vista) does not know about the
qmake variable QMAKE_MAKEFILE or MAKEFILE.

Consequently, when I try to build something with, for example,


the build fails, with the predictable message

File Makefile doesn't exist
Exited with code 128

I know this can be addressed by adding an option "-f Make.foo" in the Build Steps config. But would it not be better if Creator knew something about the qmake variables? The way it is now, the makefile name has to be set in two places.

Separately, a Creator Build->Clean All does not back up the build process all the way. In particular it doesn't remove the qmake output. Neither does Build->Clean Project.
