Whether we need to require such a thing is a point of discussion for the Qt 
6.0 release. That's the same as requirements on libraries: if we require a 
PCRE2 or Wayland library that is so new that none but the rolling-release 
distributions have at the time of launch, we'll see a slower adoption of Qt 6.

I would prefer that our requirements be present in Linux distributions we 
declare are supported build environments. If nothing else, our CI will benefit 
from this.
