Update the minimum version in various documents. Remove some
no-longer-needed code from scripts that call windeployqt.

Peter Wu e9f7bb5127 Require Python 3, drop Python 2 support
Python 3 is widely available. All major Linux distributions support it.
RHEL is covered via EPEL (which is already required for cmake3). Drop
support for Python 2 in order to reduce maintenance costs. The main
motivation is being able to simplify the tests.

CMake is updated to search for Python >= 3.4 and will fail if
unavailable (generating dissectors.c requires Python, so it is quite an
important piece to have).

The documentation is updated to reflect the Python 3.7 paths used by
Chocolatey. Tested the git-review installation instructions in Windows 7
x64 without a previous Chocolatey installation.

macOS brew now installs Python 3 (its dependencies are already installed
by python@2 for libxml2). The macOS (non-brew variant) is updated to use
the official 64-bit installer to install Python 3.

Gerald Combs cc9de69b49 Set the minimum Qt version to 4.7.
We've been using QElapsedTimer for a while now with no complaints. It
was introduced in Qt 4.7, which was first released in September 2010.

Stephen Fisher bcbfe79a64 Update README.bsd, mainly to put just the primary dependencies that
Wireshark needs and remove the others since GTK2/GTK3/Qt require
different things and those may change over time so let those programs
tell the user what they need.

Guy Harris f54de620d6 From Stephen Fisher: add more information on configuring for BSD,
modernize the section on BPF (modern BSDs have BPF built in and clone
BPF devices, so no configuration should be necessary; we can add back
the old instructions if people using older BSDs run into problems), and
add information on making BPF devices available to non-root users.

Guy Harris 8a8b883450 Set the svn:eol-style property on all text files to "native", so that
they have LF at the end of the line on UN*X and CR/LF on Windows;
hopefully this means that if a CR/LF version is checked in on Windows,
the CRs will be stripped so that they show up only when checked out on
Windows, not on UN*X.
