[SailfishDevel] Cannot deploy application since SDK upgrade

I am not sure if I had absolutely the same issue, but something that looked

I also had a subdirs project and after SDK upgrade only one of the
subprojects is runnable if you select RPM deployment even for i486 target
and for the not-runnable one you cannot select the alternative executable
nor you can create a custom configuration (well, you can, but it will try
to run it on the build machine).

Workaround that I found:

1. Run the subproject that is fine with RPM deployment (one of my
subproject was fine, maybe it's always the last one that is fine?). That
will install the dependencies to emulator

2. Switch to deployment by copying binaries. Then you will be able to
specify the alternative executable and custom command line arguments. Sure
then your code will be run from /opt , not from /usr , but for my project
it was good enough, I just have to remember which command line arguments to
supply to the test suite (my second project was a test suite).

Same thing is summarized in the demo project at
https://github.com/amarchen/sailfish-app-with-qml-test , but of course
something might be a little wrong. E.g. I think it mentions custom
executable to be used at /usr, while deploying by binary copy deploys to
/opt... a fix in docs is needed, pull requests are welcome :)
