Afais qt team has done this from the start? If there was no "gtk"
useflag, but only "gtk2" the situation would maybe be different.
Now we have gtk, gtk2 and gtk3 and the user has to figure out what they
mean for each package, cause they are not used consistently.
This is a problem.
Either cleanly avoid slot reference in useflag name or go it all the
way, but afaik the gnome herd is not interested much in supporting older
versions of gtk+, so the first way seems the best.
