The problem here is that the warning dialog doesn't give the user a hint
that he has to install qt-devel.

I tried out my idea of a solution and included a copy of assistant
as /usr/libexec/qcad/assistant. However on installing the resulting rpm,
I get 

"unpacking of archive failed on
file /usr/libexec/qcad/assistant;4211154a: cpio: MD5 sum mismatch"
