As discussed with Thomas on the #buildroot channel:

	2018-02-16 09:01:14	kos_tom	gportay: I think the OpenGL implementation should provide those flags in its .pc file, and qt should pick them up from there

Hopefully, the MESA_EGL_NO_X11_HEADERS cflags is present the egl.pc file
from mesa3d:

	$ output/host/bin/pkg-config --cflags-only-other egl

I will work on a proper solution that will be integrated in every Qt
projects that are impacted by this issue.

I need time/help to hundersand how qmake works in order to append the
egl cflags given by pkg-config in qmake.

I almost sure that I will miss the release. So, would you agree to
accept this patch serie as a temporary workaround since it fixes a real
build issue?
