Bug description:
  Some apps can't find their main qml file.  Error messages like:

  "file:///build/messaging-app-gcXPE6/messaging-
  app-0.1+16.04.20160831/src/qml/messaging-app.qml: File not found"

  (in my case, the file was in /snap/unity8-session/x24/usr/share
  /messaging-app/messaging-app.qml)

  Seems due to code like the following in config.h.in.  Probably needs
  to consider the value of $SNAP or just be a little more forgiving.

  inline bool isRunningInstalled() {
      static bool installed = (QCoreApplication::applicationDirPath() ==
                               
QDir(("@CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX@/@CMAKE_INSTALL_BINDIR@")).canonicalPath());
      return installed;
  }

  inline QString messagingAppDirectory() {
      if (isRunningInstalled()) {
          return QString("@CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX@/@MESSAGING_APP_DIR@/");
      } else {
          return QString("@CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR@/src/qml/");
      }
  }

  inline QString ubuntuPhonePluginPath() {
      if (isRunningInstalled()) {
          return QString::null;
      } else {
          return QString("@CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR@/");
      }
  }
