While the above is surely correct, its not the point i am talking about, so 
just to be sure i just try to start again:

If i may deploy for a remote linux target which unfortunatly has no QT 
installed. I have a working qt installation and a working qmake (otherwise the 
project build with qmake would fail earlier). This is used to make a cross 
build without QT for the target. Currently all pieces in qtcreator are there 
but it can't be configured as the selection dialog is greyed out in the project 
configuration because the kit has no qt assigned. As qmake is used as a build 
tool with "config -= qt" there is no qt needed on the target device and so it 
should not be greyed out in this special case.

Best regards
