Ok, I solved this by using the Windows-only *DLLDESTDIR* qmake setting in the
project file. This places /just/the DLL files into the target location and it
happens automatically at the end of the build, which is exactly what I was
looking for. It only works for Windows, but that's my current deployment
platform, so I'll deal with other operating systems if/as I portto them.
Nice talking with you, Andrzej. :)
