Cannot configure - cannot find QT

Hi all,
  When I try to configure kdelibs or arts, configure fails:

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 4.1) (library qt) not
found. Please check your installation (and make sure you compiled Qt
with -debug - doing symlinks to a -release build of Qt4 will introduce
breakage, do not do that -)!

  Looking in config.log I see:
configure:36320: /bin/sh ./libtool --silent --mode=link g++ -o
conftest -Wnon-virtual-dtor -Wno-long-long -Wundef -ansi

/home/kdedev/src/kde/build/qt-copy/lib/ undefined

If I manually run this line, I get the same error.  if I manually run
this line but stripping off the "libtool  --silent --mode=link"  then
it compiles without error.

This is using kdesvn-build.  QT compiled seemingly without error.
