Revert "Set environment variable QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR in Qt 5.6."

This reverts commit 85e1b4d0. Setting
that environment variable breaks the UI completely for certain
environments. If Qt itself doesn't enable auto scaling by default,
neither should Creator (for good reason, as it apparently  doesn't work
yet on X11).

Worse, Qt Creator must respect the environment settings set by the user,
never override it. This commit was unconditionally setting the auto
scaling, making it impossible for me to override the settings.
