There should probably be a Qt.core property that controls this. Until then, you'll have to force-override cpp.rpaths in your app product:

    Properties {
        condition: true
        overrideListProperties: true
        cpp.rpaths: [ /* full list of your rpaths */ ]

(Of course, if you don't want any RPATH at all, then "cpp.useRPaths: false" is the way to go.)
