Android: Don't include Apache code under LGPLv2 license
The code which extracts style assets for the Android style is licensed under the Apache license, which is not compatible with LGPLv2.1. It is, however, compatible with LGPLv3. This means that the Android platform plugin cannot be LGPLv2.1 as long as this code is included. To minimize licensing confusion, we default to only providing LGPLv3 for Android. If you want to build a LGPLv2.1-compatible library, you can add -no-android-style-assets to the configuration. This will in turn enable the LGPLv2.1 in the configure output, and it will disable the extraction code in the platform plugin. Running the Android style with an LGPLv2.1-compatible platform plugin will work, but it will look horrible. [ChangeLog][Android] Default open-source license for Qt for Android is now LGPLv3. For compatibility with the LGPLv2.1 license, add "-no-android-style-assets" to your configuration.
