[Qbs] Depending on binary from install-root

Hi Richard,

thank you for the prompt answer. Adding explicit dependency on
"installable" works. But adding the input dependency on application
does not:

The rule uses

inputs: [ "alang"]

to depend on the alang source code files. When I add additionally

inputsFromDependencies: [ "application" ]

it doesn't work. inputs["application"] is always undefined. If I remove
the inputs setting it finds the application but then the transpiler
gets no input source code. Seems like inputs and inputsFromDependencies
are mutual exclusive. I couldn't find a way to depend on both at the
same time.

Regards, Jochen
