As an aside to this, it seems that QtUiTools is built statically on Linux as well. 
It's just that it's installed into the same directory as the shared libraries vs. on
OS X where it wouldn't make sense (I suppose) to put it in /Library/Frameworks.

I'm not sure why it's forced as a static library; it could be out of necessity or
perhaps it's an oversight by Trolltech.  Presumably since the new QtScript library
relies on it in 4.3, it too will be built statically.
