hmm, yeah, we could do that, indeed. just write the spec names out to
qconfig.cpp, like the paths, etc.  this would allow us to remove some
obscure code which even deviates between platforms.
the problem being that a lot of unix-based 3rd party build systems rely
on the symlink's presence. but we'd break that if we move it to a
different directory anyway.
