you don't. you ask qbs to list the configs and use the built-in clean
command to get rid of them.
imo, build dirs should be entirely opaque to the user. only the
deployment/install dir should be visible (and thus explicitly
configurable). we should not support in-builddir execution at all,
only builds with instant installation (and possibly automatic
short-circuiting, so executables are directly built into the install
