Well, start with the description of what happened that led you to the 
conclusion that you needed this module. The only reference I see in the 
Subsurface source code to QtPositionngQuick seems to be a workaround to this 
particular issue.

My wild guess: a new plugin that gets deployed by macdeployqt, which links to 
this library, but isn't added by macdeployqt.
