Allright, RedHat 6.0 installs qt and qt-devel in an uncommon fashion
(shoot RH since the don't stick to what everybody else does or the KDE
guys for writing their configure files with to little imagination ;)

Here is a quick solution which will help you compile all
other KDE source packages:

cd /usr/lib/qt
ln -s /usr/lib lib
ln -s /usr/include/qt include
export QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt

That way you don't have to bother about Makefile hacking whenever
you try to compile a new KDE-package.
