The weird thing is... every time this subject turns up (and it has, again 
and again), you get the Trolls saying: use pkg-config. That's the 
Trolltech-recommended way of finding Qt 4.

You know that some distributions ship the Qt libraries in split packages, 
right? What happens if qmake is installed and QtCore, but not QtGui? 
pkg-config can tell you that, qmake will only barf when you try to create 
a .pro project.
