Hi _usul,

I´m sorry to say that, but it seems you did all the work for nothing ;)

I guess the error is that you´re using KDE 2 and this sets environment
variables different.

Either:

export KDEDIR=/opt/kde
export QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt

Or:

./configure --with-qt-dir=/usr/lib/qt --prefix=/opt/kde

should help, that´s all ;)
You could have written about that earlier, that would have saved you
some time ;)

Greetings,

Ralf
