In the QtCreator project I link with libimobiledevice and macdeployqt is able to copy and rereference it, but it doesn’t do to the others making the bundle invalid in a another system

AFAIK macdeploy*qt* will only deploy Qt libraries. Those link against *system* frameworks which you do not need to worry about (when it comes to deployment).

I don't know about libimobiledevice, but that doesn't sound like a genuine Qt library to me.

Means: you need to deploy it (and its dependencies) yourself. The "install_name_tool" is your friend here.

(And are we really talking about *desktop* Macs here?)
