Oh gosh, I hadn't thought of that.
As it happens, I plan to upgrade my main development machine to Ubuntu 14.04
LTS sometime after it's released (if it's not utterly disastrous), which
should get me more modern libraries.
I don't want to put yet more barriers to 2.5.0-beta1 though. If it comes to it
I can build the distribution tarball in a VM or something, I suppose.

Once I upgrade, we should either do that, or remove apparent ability to build
Qt client from the shipping configure (if you really want S2_4 Qt you have to
rerun or build from svn or something).
