If you don't the source compiled built with different build settings, 
then I recommend creating a static library, like you did.

Source file collections (like .pri files) are not supported yet. But 
there's suggestion QBS-59 for this feature.

One can achieve something similar by using inheritance and/or .js files. 
It's just not that nice.

Put the transformer to a separate file, e.g. mytrafo.qbs.
Then import it
    import "somewhere/mytrafo.qbs" as MyTrafo
and instantiate it
    MyTrafo {
        // and maybe override properties here
