I still have to see proof that a "pure Qt application" installed with MacPorts
really cares about where QSP points to - apart from the obvious migration issue
if this ever changes.
I keep having the feeling that the simplest solution is to consider MacPorts
a different "platform" than OSX, in terms of paths. For sure the install path of
an app installed via MacPorts will be something like /opt/local while a real
OSX Qt app wouldn't go there. So can't it live with settings in ~/.config and
data files in ~/.local/share etc.?

Otherwise, the next best idea is to get ECM to add your activator to all link lines
automatically, e.g. by adding it to CMAKE_EXE_LINKER_FLAGS or whatever.
This for sure beats editing every link line, or trying to guess which frameworks
are going to be "used by everyone".
