patch across the tree to conditionalize dependency on firebird
Currently on aarch64 (and other tier-2 clients) databases/firebird25-client fails to build due to the lack of a working AtomicCounter implementation. I looked into what it would take to fix that, but it is outside my scope at this time.
However, firebird25-client is depended on by devel/qt4, devel/qt5, and libreoffice-*.
This patch (currently undergoing testing on one of my machines) attempts to restrict those ports' dependence on firebird25-client to only x86.
This is just a heads-up until the run completes. It will probably need an -exp run.
The Qt bits look fine to me; adding a comment with some context about why this is necessary would also be helpful.
