The sdktool is installed into libexec/qtcreator/, the Qt Creator
binary into bin/ and the settings are expected in
IDE_SETTINGSVARIANT_STR defaulting to QtProject) by our build system.
If the distribution changes that layout, then it needs to adjust the
paths build into the binaries to find those settings. In this case
they apparently missed the sdktool. They will need to edit DATA_PATH
in src/tools/sdktool/sdktool.pro to fix this.
I suggest you report a bug against the packages you are using.
