documentation/yocto-project-qs/yocto-project-qs.xml: Edits plus Matt Madison note regarding older host systems
I made a few small edits and I added a reference to the wiki page 'https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/BuildingOnRHEL4' that has entries for older development hosts. Right now all that is there is the RHEL4 notes but the wiki page can be expanded as needed.
