Sorry, but this did not work either. First I had to install
manually because 'jom install' in qbs source dir forgot it.

After rebuilding Creator from scratch and installing it to the desired
INSTALL_ROOT there were again all qbs files (modules, plugins) duplicated
as before. The build behaviour did not change, there is always a complete
rebuild when using qbs - qtcreator - qbs - ...
