Actually, the reason that you *need* to pass -system-xxx on distributions is 
to make sure that Qt will use the system lib. In other words, if you forget 
your BuildRequires: tag, the build for Qt should fail. If you let the default 
on, it's possible that Qt will accidentally use the bundled copy.
