Android: Fix installing signed packages

This works around missing support for standalone installations
of signed packages in androiddeployqt. The tool will use its
arguments to decide what the package to install is named, so
the arguments need to match the ones used to build the package.
In particular, we need to tell it that we are creating a signed

This is intended as a temporary solution. The tool should be fixed
to support this use case properly, but the changes needed there
were deemed too risky at this point in the release cycle, so we
apply the work-around for now.
