In other words: When I run 'make dist' headers and implementations should 
be generated by uic and moc and included into the distribution and 
makefiles instead of (or in addition to) the .ui files?

Sure, I'll do some further investigations.

Any file you like. To reproduce:
1. Add any file to your project.
2. Right click on it, then select 'Properties...'
3. Uncheck the "include in distribution" checkbox.
4. Make a distro - the file still gets included...
