The problem is that Jeremy's comment wasn't quite correct - KDEInstallDirs 
isn't a macro, and doesn't know anything about the targets that your project 
is building. It's just a module that provides a bunch of variables telling you 
where to install various types of files.

That said, if we implement a profile system, it would be easy enough to export 
a variable that tells you whether to link your Qt5-based programs against some 
extra library.
