I don't know why its that way (depends-on, no comment to indicated why
it's hidden).

Looking back at the history, most of the additions like this were
"depends on".  Most of the mods that added "select" were to select
non-Qt switches.  The commits logs that I scanned don't comment on one
versus the other, except for these two exceptions.

4059a814bb133d4dc306a366cdeba186cb7b8b89 - depends-on gstreamer used
due to complicated gstreamer dependencies.
d018125508c1d13f69b71702384c00c7095986a1 - qt-dbus: replace dependency
on dbus by select

For this particular case, I would have used a "select" if there were
not already pre-existing similar conditions.  (Similar in the sense
that they were also qt-config-related.)

The reason why I stumbled on to this is that I was attempting to
reduce my total ubifs file size be deselecting stuff.  Then my qml app
failed to load due to lack of QtSql.  So I figured that I'd patch, to
save my future self and others from the same fate.
