    Use the qtchooser default Qt on first run instead of forcing Qt 4. · 6f2a0c66

    This makes 'qmake' the first qmake binary to check when iterating
    over possible Qt:s on the system. Without this if the system uses the
    old way of adding version suffixes to Qt binaries (kept for Qt 4 for
    compatibility reasons in Debian and Ubuntu), Qt 4 would be used
    over Qt 5 even if Qt 5 is the default.
    I've tested it to be working on Ubuntu 13.04 and 12.04 LTS as follows,
    with Qt Creator 2.7 patched. At each phase I removed the old Qt Creator
    configuration to simulate first run.
    1. With Qt 5 as the default, no qmake-qt4, Qt 5 continues to be found.
    2. With Qt 5 as the default + qmake-qt4, Qt Creator now still finds Qt 5
    as it's the /usr/bin/qmake - this is the part that fixes the bug.
    3. With Qt 4 as the default, Qt 4 is found via /usr/bin/qmake
    (before, it would have been found via qmake-qt4 symlink).
    4. With qtchooser removed but qt4-qmake still installed, Qt 4 is
    found via /usr/bin/qmake-qt4 as a fallback.
