Yes, and the question is where the -L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu argument is added 
to the LDFLAGS, or rather, how I can prevent that from happening ... Probably 
not a trivial step as it clearly doesn't appear in all link commands.
(It occurs in the link command for the sqlite3 plugin, for an xcb library, and 
then only for the pulseaudio plugin from qtmultimedia.)

Or maybe there is a way to force the build process to use absolute paths rather 
than the -lQtFoo form?
