  • qibuild test: small bug fix for --test-name
  • qibuild config --wizard: fix unsetting build dir or sdk dir
  • qibuid config --wizard:: fix generator discovery for cmake 2.8.6 under windows

    • added qtopengl, qtmultimedia, qt_phonon, eigen3, iphlpapi
    • now using upstream FindQt4.cmake to find qt when qmake is in PATH.
    • now using using FindBoost.cmake
    • zeromq: add dependency on RT for linux
    • libevent: add dependency on RT for linux
