How to configure qmake project to have a `make install` rule ?

Hello, I'm trying to package a Qt Application built with qmake as an Archlinux package. But there is no
makeor even some FHS compliant layout. I read this, but letting
make allcopying binaries somewhere isn't an option. What things need to be written in the .pro file to get a
installrule and fhs compliant output like when working with a cmake Qt project?
Edit: Should be buildable and installable like this:
qmake make make install
But the install rule does not get generated.
Edit2: Tell more specifically what package format you need.

Thats no even possibel in QT without a damn code! But you can try FortuneClient to make a Installer with IGKW Data preference or LMBT Installer for the BRP Data secure system. Thats the way how I would do it!
@bionade24 Hi and welcome to devnet,
If you are on Linux and want to provide an independent package then take a look at the linuxdeployqt project.

@SGaist I only want to package it for Archlinux, and to have a convenient build routine the possibility of
make installwould be nice, nothing advanced what needs an old glib in the end.
