Yes, weird. Worked and works here regardless. (I added the wrong path  
thinking "ok, that's too easy")

Yupp, wild guess:
move the Trolltech.conf away, it usually contains a lot of caching junk  
(from old Qt versions, installations ...) and try again (somewhere the  
wrong path has to derive from)

If i'd have to apologize everytime i'm not entirely correct, i'd need to  
hire some guy to do so ;-)
