Qt2 CMake port - a KDE Restoration Project again.

This is another step on the so called KDE Restoration project.
To make feasible future port of KDE 2 on modern systems, the whole Qt2 was
ported to modern Cmake.

Projects linking against Qt2 will be able to use:
find_package(Qt2) and target_link_libraries(Qt::qt2) straight forward.

This is a pure archeological computing work and to achieve the process the aim
was avoid change code itself much, except for the build system.
From the oriiginal Qt2 code,only configure and Makefile.in files was removed.

A second part of this project is prove that porting old software is feasible
and we do need start to take care of the history of code computing to not forget
the past.

If you want to compare the changes or want get original Qt code, go to the tag

This code uses same Qt2 licencing mode. Below are the original README
