Right. With the frameworks idea, better install into the prefix, using the 
directories I defined in ECM (KDEInstallDirs.cmake, QT_PLUGIN_INSTALL_DIR) 

The user will have to set QT_PLUGIN_PATH if installing phonon into a different 
dir than Qt, but that's fine -- it will only have to be done once, for all of 
the frameworks installed into the same prefix.

So let's do that, rather than use qmake to detect where Qt got installed
(which could be in non-writable /usr...)
