I have seen cross-compiling folks using the cross-platform abilities of 
Qt to prototype stuff on desktop. The assumption is: most people want to 
have a full desktop Qt anyways.

You're especially affected because of your focus on Android.
That's all I'm saying.

You'll be delighted to learn that the priority is at P3.
You could put energy into explaining why this is especially important to 
you and many others. But please, it's your call to continue rambling on 
aimlessly instead.

I suggest to create a bug report about the hard-coded paths, explain 
what's wrong. You know the game.

Regarding multi-ABI, there's QTBUG-80943 that tracks this.
