*** Setting INSTALLER no longer handled

meson.build sets a hard name for the Windows installer executable: installer
= 'qemu-setup-' + meson.project_version() + '.exe'.

Previously the installer name could be changed by running `make installer
INSTALLER=qemu-setup-something.exe`. This no longer works. Is there an
alternative solution how the name of the installer executable can be set? Or
how could I reimplement the lost functionality?
Why were you needing to override the name ?  Was this so that you can
give distinct names to the Win32 vs Win64 installer exes ?

If so, would it be better if QEMU used a distinct filename for the
Win32 vs Win64 installers automatically, to avoid need to override
at all ?

I now use installer names like qemu-w64-setup-20201118.exe since about 6 years, so yes, my names include w32 or w64 to show whether they contain 32 or 64 bit binaries, and they also contain a date instead of the QEMU version.

For my build process I now create the default name and rename it later. That solves the problem for me.
