 As Qt-client is all new client with no existing userbase, it's not a
problem to make Qt requirements higher - those who cannot use it can
use gtk2-, and sdl-clients just as they currently do.

someone else using same IP) and cannot load gna trackers.

 Attached patch works for me in that the updated Qt-check still
