While the bootstrap libraries play a much reduced role in the cmake
branch, the bootstrap code is still needed: moc, rcc, qfloat16-tables
and tracegen link against it right now. I would love to see somebody
rewrite these tools in plain C++. It should not be that hard to do

Qmake for the time being also links against a special build of QtCore,
but that is a separate issue. It needs some extra APIs on top of what
a normal Qt provides. So even with cmake we are currently building
parts of Qtbase 3 times:-/
