Pushed the debug msg for the Qt task, and will include it in all future

I'll push in pairs after some more checking. Did everything except for
buildslave* and qt4.

I like this command line. Produces a cleaner run as long as you're
not looking for skipped tasks/hosts and deprecation warnings:

    ANSIBLE_DEPRECATION_WARNINGS=False DISPLAY_SKIPPED_HOSTS=False ansible-playbook --inventory=hosts qt5.yml

Not sure how to solve that as dnf is in ansible 1.9 and the
ansible_version variable was only added in 1.8.

Also spotted this: https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/2.4/release_and_maintenance.html#release-status
that says anything below 2.2 is EOL.
