Sorry, it needs some time for me to get into this stuff again. You have to
create a symbolic link

$ ls /usr/lib/libdl* -l

Because I haven't a qt 3.1.0 source it need some time to look into.
I haven't compiled the original qt 3.1.0, but it seems they haven't applied all
patches which are necessary to get it running on cygwin.

My hint goes in this direction, that you have to look into the sources and see
which patch from the kde-cygwin area has to be applied and which not. This isn't
an easy task. It needs deep knowledge of the qt library internals.

Don't care, but be aware that this isn't a 5 minute job.

I don't think, that trolltech will invest much efforts in the cygwin port and
someone of the kde-cygwin team has to do this.

If you are willing to investigate some more time, we will assist you.
