Octave fails to compile against Qt 5.11 with a few instances of the following error

../libgui/src/settings-dialog.cc: In constructor ‘settings_dialog::settings_dialog(QWidget*, const QString&)’:
../libgui/src/settings-dialog.cc:302:57: error: invalid use of incomplete type ‘class QButtonGroup’
   QButtonGroup *icon_size_group = new QButtonGroup (this);
In file included from /usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/QtWidgets/qtoolbutton.h:45:0,
                 from /usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/QtWidgets/QToolButton:1,
                 from ../libgui/src/octave-dock-widget.h:30,
                 from ../libgui/src/variable-editor.h:33,
                 from ../libgui/src/settings-dialog.cc:33:
/usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/QtWidgets/qabstractbutton.h:53:7: note: forward declaration of ‘class QButtonGroup’
 class QButtonGroup;

all in settings-dialog.cc.

This looks pretty simple and reasonable to fix on stable with an extra include, will test and push the fix as soon as I have a bug number.
