falkon --disable-gpu

On older hardwares or systems where hardware acceleration has not been configured correctly the browser shows videos with wrong colors.

This patch adds in pkg-message the suggestion to disable hardware acceleration through the --disable-gpu option.

I tested successfully the option with falkon 3.1.0 and qt5-webengine 5.12.2_3 on FreeBSD 12.0-STABLE r350836 amd64

See bug #237277.
