I haven't done this from within Rev itself as I have checked for and 
installed the component from within my programs installer.  I have the 
paths where the component should be installed to if need them.  What I 
don't remember is if you have to restart your application to make the 
component available or not.  I think as long as the install happens 
before any QT functions are called in your app you should be fine.  
Otherwise you may or may not have problems.
