I'm having trouble understanding what you meant. It's probably one of two 
possibilities and both are wrong:

1) you're trying to install something to where QtCore is located
2) you're trying to install QtCore somewhere else

You look up Qt's prefix to install stuff to. If your user requests you install 
there via CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX, that's different. The important thing is that 
you should always install your stuff to CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX.

And you should leave Qt alone. Qt is already properly installed.
