No automatic reconfiguration / reconfiguration feature when system environment changes

Bug Description

Continuation from bug #1135336 (as is bug #1164508). Now the system default Qt is correctly recognized by Qt Creator at first run. However if the system was not correctly set up on the first run, or if the configuration changes, Qt Creator does not notice this and multiple things in Qt Creator configuration may be broken. It would be useful to have some sort of "reconfigure" button, overwriting old config.

Removing the configuration files is currently the only "easy" way to make Qt Creator autodetect system environment again:

rm -r .config/Trolltech.conf .config/Qt* .config/Nokia*

Otherwise you can see the bug #1135336 description on how to manually fix various pieces of Qt Creator configuration via settings dialogs.
