qcad-data required for working font for dimensions

Status in “qcad” package in Ubuntu: Confirmed

Bug description:
Binary package hint: qcad

Without qcad-data, you do not have the fonts to show dimension labels on diagrams.

This makes the package useless for displaying or making cad diagrams & is very subtle to debug (no warning messages whatsoever, oblique reference in qcad documentation suggesting launching in installation directory for qcad to find fonts).

Simple fix --> require qcad-data !
