      Description

      qmlplugindump fails because it cannot find the platform plugin.

      qmlplugindump is in the bin/ directory next to qmake, and we added a qt.conf file to make qmake output the right examples and documentation directories. Unfortunately this qt.conf file is also used for qmlplugindump (which is a command line tool that uses QtGui). Additionally unfortunate, Qt resolves the paths in the qt.conf file relative to qmlplugindump/Contents (which makes sort of sense for apps with an app bundle).

      So the qt.conf cannot be used for qmake and for qmlplugindump at the same time, leaving us only with the option to patch the examples and documentation path in qmake directly.
