[Buildroot] [git commit] qextserialport: use 'make install' to install to staging

commit: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=8ad8e9917fd1ea37a4866ef00ce42fd029a72bae
branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

qmake hardcodes the path to the sysroot in the install commands, so
we can't use it for target. But it's perfectly usable for staging.

By using 'make install', we get:
- the extserialport.prf file is installed to the mkspecs directory and
  libqextserialport.prl in staging/usr/lib, so qmake can do its magic
  and add the necessary compiler options;
- it also works for static build, when *.so files don't exist.

The QExtSerialPort and qextserialport.pc files are created by
Buildroot so they still have to be installed explicitly. Note that
upstream installs in the QtExtSerialPort directory, not QExtSerialPort,
so we follow that decision.
