found the other bug tracker entry about this, strangely it is marked
as done with fix release 5.3.1

Maybe the Qt maintenance tool picked up a wrong version of Qt 5.3.1?
Nonetheless a possible workaround for now is to add this to every qml
plugin that is to be deployed on android.

#See: https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-37638
equals(QT_MAJOR_VERSION, 5){
  equals(QT_MINOR_VERSION, 3){
    CONFIG -= android_install

It really looks like I should stop cargo culting the qmake variables
from the Qt manuals and start reading the source code (since CONFIG +=
plugin seems just pointless now).
