Package:           kdevelop
Version:           KDE 2.2.2 
Severity:          normal

I have libqt2-2.3.1-29mdk and libqt2-devel-2.3.1-29mdk installed (usr/lib/qt2), the directory is recognized by kdevelop's path settings.
Still, running configure (even with --with-qt-...) on a new project gives the following error:
"checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 2.2.2) (library qt) not found. Please check your installation!"

Output of configure.log:

Is this a bug?
