Urgh.  I didn't.   I assumed the package's build-depends already took care of

Now that I check, the Depends will prevent the kde build from being installed,
but not from being built.  AFAIK, building with GPLv2 headers requires
compatibility as well, since all the copyrighted declarations are propagated
to our object code.  My upload should be removed.

Let's backport Qt then?  Sylvain, are you interested in doing that?  I don't
want to step on your toes again ;-)
