KDevelop does not build with older Qt

we claim we support building with Qt 5.9 but that is unfortunately not the
case in practice. A friend of mine tried to build KDevelop with Qt 5.11 which
We have no CI coverage for anything pre Qt 5.15 and I think this shows that
no Distro or anyone else actually builds KDevelop with such old Qt versions.
Either way we would have been notified of build failures.
I see three options
1) Be careful when committing to no break older Qt
2) Build ourselves against the minimum required versions
3) Bump the Qt version to what is actually tested
It's clear that 1) did not work otherwise I would not be writing this email ;D
