it wouldn't be terribly hard. it would just make some (well spread) code
more complex. basically, $$[QT_HOST_DATA]/mkspecs/<somefile> would turn
into $$search_path(QMAKE_MKSPECS, <somefile>) or something like that
(that function needs to be written yet).

fwiw, the default mkspec links would need to go to lib, too, obviously.
