[Interest] C++11 support on Qt5 platforms

Can you use any version of the Android NDK with the Qt SDK (ie. using Qt 
Creator and not recompiling Qt source)?



The latest Android NDK (Revision 9, July 2013) added GCC 4.8, although GCC 
4.6 is still the default...

Android NDK, Revision 9 (July 2013)

Added GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 4.8 compiler to the NDK. Since GCC 4.6 
is still the default, you must explicitly enable this option.
