Don't do any random installs. That way just leads to further disaster, and
teaches us nothing, so no fix, if there is a problem, can be done. You
definately have something setup on your machine incorrectly. The question is

Now it would help if you told us _exactly_ what is happening. I'm assuming
that you have installed an rpm of 1.1? Is that correct? What rpm? on what
system? Now you are trying to compile a project that used to work. Is that
correct? What type of project (custom etc)? What qt versions do you have
installed? And, even though you don't like QTDIR, where does it point to?

This would be a start to getting the problem solved.
