Since I ran into the same problems some time ago, there should be somethi=
like a FAQ entry?  ;-)

If you check out qt from CVS you have to first issue an
'make -f Makefile.cvs'. This generates the missing symbolic links to the=20
header files.
The next step is to configure with the correct options. You can use the s=
config.cygwin. If you want so, you can enable Threading by replacing=20
'-no-thread' with '-thread'. This seems to be needed for KDE.
The next problem I had was linking. If it's missing the Library libld.a, =
can create a symbolic link to /lib/libcygwin.a in /lib or /usr/lib. This=20
fakes the ld library. Alternatively you can also remove the -ldl option f=

The cvs conflicts seem to be known already, as Ralf noted. Perhaps could=20
somebody resolve them?
