I don't think we are getting it wrong a lot of the time.  The reason for
the thread is to test a new version.   The change is to fix systems that change 
the name of moc to something like moc-qt4.   Other than that, it is working well.
I don't see it as magic.  Qmake is the least common denominator for all
systems that have QT on them.   It has the information we need, and if you find
qmake, you can find everything you need to build a QT application.  The current
setup only requires that qmake be in the PATH.   The same requirement that QT has
for using qmake to build projects.
