That's the reason I initially wanted to use a debianrules created from the 
version we use and ship it with the dh-make template. Wasn't much of a 
problem until now that we changed it but I guess we have to add a new one 
there that doesn't include admin/debianrules but debian/debianrules which we 
ship by ourselves. OTOH Qt should be found fine through the search pathes 
admin uses for looking through configure for it automatically.
