That's what I said. I think Qt would be the only dependency that would
need to be recompiled. Presumably, you could use some name-mangling
scheme like attaching -gcc3.2 or something to the Qt libraries and
package name, in lieu of a real transition plan.
I'll have to test this today and see if it actually works.
