Instead of a set of Dockerfiles, each one for a different distro, which
makes for a lot of duplicated code, could it be written in a single
Dockerfile which checks the OS and does as approppriate for that OS?

Another issue that I see is the Qt version. Can we rely on always having
the needed version from the ubuntu-sdk-team repository?
