ln -s /Users/liangqi/dev/packages/checker-256/bin/clang-3.0 clang++

4. Build

cd ~/build
mkdir qt-48-clang
cd qt-48-clang
export PATH=/usr/local/bin:/Users/liangqi/dev/packages/checker-256:$PATH
/Users/liangqi/qt/work/configure -platform unsupported/macx-checker -nokia-developer -no-webkit -no-qt3support -no-declarative -no-xmlpatterns -no-script -no-scripttools -no-phonon -no-multimedia -nomake tools -nomake demos -nomake examples -fast -verbose -no-framework
scan-build make

5. Output

In the end of the output, you will find a command like “scan-build: Run ‘scan-view /var/folders/QB/QBTpJfK+HfqtpmxTOms2nU+++TI/-Tmp-/scan-build-2011-07-20-3’ to examine bug reports.”, do it!

NOTE: the above way doesn’t work with checker-257!
