The Qt root path is not the include dir, but the dir above, i.e.
/usr/lib/qt3. Its what one would use for the QTDIR variable, but its
irrelevant for automake projects anyway (as stated in the whatsthis

With automake projects you have to either use a KDE template for your
application or add the Qt include directories via the Automake manager.
I believe there's an entry in the FAQ on how to do this.

Sorry I have no idea. It might as well be a problem with your absolute
paths to qapplication and co. I suggest to not use the C++ hello world

Qt. Or if you want to avoid the kde-automake-overhead: Use the Qt3
templates with qmake.
