No, but moc should be the only bootstrapped tool. My point is that we should 
do away with the bootstrap library.

All other tools should like to QtCore. That means:

1) rcc should not be used in QtCore (easy to fix, can do in Qt 5 even)

2) all other tools in non-cross builds link to QtCore, as they do now

3) all tools in cross builds link to a host QtCore that must be preinstalled
Preferably, reuse the tools from that host build instead of building again
