[Qt-creator] Qt Creator not loading CMake project

I usually start Qt Creator (on macos anyway) with "open ~/Qt/Qt
Creator.app" to make sure the environment is the same as in my shell. If
that doesn't work, maybe inspect what 'cmake' you are calling from the
shell, and which one is being used by Qt Creator (Kits -> CMake tab).
