I second that.

Oops, I didn't reflect enough on that, the problem is with the dev-files, see

I had to install the Qt developpment files a few years ago, first 3.? the 4.0
(I'm no programmer but I wrote a few programs just for fun)
IIRC in both cases I had to specify if I wanted it threaded.
AFAIK distros come with the libs to run Qt programs, but not necessarily with
all that is necessary to compile from source.
My apologies for the noise. Perry
