It was commented out for a reason, so presumably the bug it was solving would 
come back. Note it was adding ALL packages, not just freedesktop.org.xml. The 
code could be modified to find just freedesktop.org.xml. Since the 
-no-mimetype-database option is provided for systems where the database is 
never missing, QtCore's copy missing means the system copy must be present.

I'll do that and push again.

Or you can hardcode it for Linux distros. That's what I did for Clear.

The problem is the 5.14 follow-up, which means to unbootstrap rcc. That means 
Qt Creator can't reach the QtCore copy, even if it is present.
