I think it's probably Qt. Either that or egcs. STILL haven't figured out
how the HELL it got past me. And haven't really had time to go back to
gcc. *sigh* It's been a rough week. ;(

/usr/local/kde, actually. It all goes there, thankfully, if you compile it
yourself. Unfortunately, three or four of the source tgz's just won't
compile, because whatever idiot, for want of a better term, put them
together neglected to include somewhat IMPORTANT files. *grumble* ;P

Yeah, I noticed that. Drives me absolutely nuts, but I'm dealing. I
played symlink-at-will too, so it's not too bad. But it's still somewhat
chaotic and hard to manage. ;P

I forgot to mention. VX chipset. "Industrial" motherboard. (It's a
frigging VX chipset mo'board with a P90 and 32M FPM on a *VLB* slot
running at <33MHz.) With EVERYTHING onboard except the NIC and modem.
Trio64V2 is unaccellerated, too, IIRC. It's *not* a nice machine. It's the
kind of machine that just makes you want to hunt down and kill those
responsible. ;P
