    Default Qt 5.9.2 WebEngine build fails with Visual Studio 2017

    I downloaded the Qt 5.9.2 sources and started building (Windows 8.1, Visual Studio 2017, 64-bit) and discovered that the build fails.
    Qt was configured with the following options:
    -opensource -debug-and-release -opengl desktop -nomake examples -nomake tests -confirm-license -skip qtdoc -qtnamespace %QT_NAMESPACE%
    with %QT_NAMESPACE% a script generated namespace of the form ABC_5_9_2

    First thing I had to do was add this patch:

    After a long wait I was then greeted with this link error:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\VC\Tools\MSVC\14.11.25503\bi n\HostX64\x64\jom.exe" -f Makefile.core_module.Debug all

    Does anyone have an idea how to fix this ?
