If you build the qbs from the Qt Creator sources, that will produce a completely independent qbs install in <qtcreator>/libexec/…..

Should be possible by settings QBS_INSTALL_DIR (env or qmake variable) to the alternative QBS installation location (which needs to have headers as well).
It should then not build the qbs that is included in Qt Creator, but build against the one in QBS_INSTALL_DIR.
