extras/contrib is built on the build machine. so normally we got the
good binaries.  Except for qt because we don't build it we just extract
a tar.gz of binaries. Which happen to have elf64 binaries.

So the plan is to write a makefile for uic, moc and rcc and build them
from the source.

for the contrib.tar.bz2 on the ftp it's a bit more tricky. but i think
i'll end up having both binaries in and the user can make the
appropriate symlink.
