Use the compile-type for plugins, too.

This change, along with the changes made by Gavin in 21a4198f7 , makes
the plugins install use the --compile-type , as specified by the mythtv
configure arguments.  Since we had set "profile:CONFIG += release", the
plugins were always being stripped by make install, regardless of what
we had specified when configuring the mythtv build.  After the change,
the plugins binaries will be stripped only if mythtv was configured with

Packagers, please note that this means that plugins
($PREFIX/lib/mythtv/plugins/libmyth*.so) will contain debug symbols (for
the first time, ever, TTBOMK) if you compile with --compile-type=debug
or profile, so you may need to extend your "strip debug symbols into
separate debug files" scripts to also handle plugins.

This also means that users can now get useful backtraces for plugins.

(Note, also, that I am by no means a Qt/qmake expert, so if someone sees
a better way of doing this or a reason why it's wrong, please let me
know.  I'm assuming it's right only because it appears to do the right
