[Qbs] Generated header files used by multiple products

In our project we are using a custom module to generate header files 
with classes that descend from QObject.

If a single product depends on this generator module everything works as 
expected.  A second product, however, may not as well depend on the 
generator module, as Qbs complains about duplicate output artifacts.  
Without the explicit dependency to the generator module the second 
product compiles nonetheless (as the header files have already been 
generated).  But now it's the linker that complains about missing 
symbols from the moc generated source files.

How to share generated header files across products while pertaining moc
