Help needed kde-devel 3.1.1

I hope this is posted to the right place.  I need some help in installing "setup-kde-3.1.1-b1-devel.exe". Also, some advice as to what KDE applications would be expected to compile would be helpful.

I have installed a cygwin, setup-kde-3.1.1-b1.exe and setup-kde-3.1.1-b1-u1.exe.  KDE runs fine, but quite slowly and I am very impressed.
Boldened, I thought I would try to compile a KDE application and I choose kdevelop.

When I run configure it complains that it can't find qt-mt when it gets to the bit where it checks for qt.
(configure:21734: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.1 (20021021)) (library qt-mt) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.
Make sure that you have compiled Qt with thread support!)

Config log shows the following to have failed:
configure:21691: rm -rf SunWS_cache; g++ -o conftest.exe -Wnon-virtual-dtor -Wno-long-long -Wundef -Wall -pedantic -W -Wpointer-arith -Wmissing-prototypes -Wwrite-strings -O2 -fno-exceptions -fno-check-new -I/opt/kde3/include -I/usr/X11R6/include -DQT_THREAD_SUPPORT -L/opt/kde3/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lqt-mt -lpng -lz -lm -ljpeg -lXext -lX11 -lSM -lICE -lpthread 1>&5

/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-cygwin/3.2/../../../../i686-pc-cygwin/bin/ld: cannot find -lqt-mt

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

configure:21694: $? = 1

The first question I have is, where do you install "setup-kde-3.1.1-b1-devel.exe". Should it go over /opt/kde3 or in a separate location, I have tried both.  By default it seems to want to put it in \program files\KDE3.1, if you try to put it in /opt/kde3 it complains about writing to an existing directory. However, the file lib\libqt-mt.dll is a .lnk file to ../bin/cygqt-mt-3.dll, which seems to imply that they should all go into the same place.  I notice the FAQ has a script to fix up the links and I have tried this as well all to no avail.

I am using a command like:
./configure --with-qt-dir=/opt/kde3

Thanks in advance
