[Interest] QMAKE_POST_LINK for static libraries

I need to run a command on a static library after it has been built. 
QMAKE_POST_LINK appears to fit the bill, but it runs the command after 
the link but before ranlib and before the file is moved to the final 
output directory, so it's too early. (ranlib should be considered part 
of the link really.)

What I'm trying to do is run lipo (on OSX) after the link in order to 
update a fat library with the architecture that has just been built. 
I'll build my library twice into different directories with different 
qmake specs, then merge the resulting libraries into one fat library. 
Maybe someone else has a better way to do this?
