Currently the docs say this:

"Installation on MacOS/X

On MacOS/X you may need to pass -spec macx-g++ in order to generate a Makefile, otherwise an XCode project file may be created. In particular the Qt Designer plugin will not load if you do not do this.”

At least with Xcode 7.3 and Qt 5.6.1 “-spec macx-g++” must not be used; if added it generates a build that fails with lots of errors about std::declvar and std::u32string etc. A Makefile is generated.
