Well, a) Qt already depends on being installed and b) it will be actually 
easier because it's a matter of adjusting PKG_CONFIG_PATH and you're set.

Well, the whole reason for this thread is the fact that you get it wrong a lot 
of time right now so it wouldn't be really a step back. And as Benjamin 
already pointed out, it's not that anyone is pushing you to remove whatever 
magic you're using right now, but it would certainly be nice if a solution 
which is becoming the standard of detecting library locations on our core 
platform (and yes, that is GNU/Linux) would actually by used as the default 
by our build system.


There are two ways to write error-free programs. Only the third one works.
