Phonon backends should be installed in Qt plugins dir path instead of ${LIB_INSTALL_DIR}/kde4/plugins

At the moment, Phonon backends are installed inside
${LIB_INSTALL_DIR}/kde4/plugins/ which seems wrong.

By default Qt applications search the plugins under the library paths
Under KDE, startkde sets QT_PLUGIN_PATH and
${LIB_INSTALL_DIR}/kde4/plugins/ is appended, everything is fine.
But under another desktop environment, the backends couldn't be loaded
as they are not found in the default Qt plugins path.
By the way, it make sense to install Qt Phonon backends inside Qt
plugins path instead of KDE plugins path.

any comments ?
