and see if that helps. If it does then upstream is using a very old
admin/ directory which should probably be updated.
If the compilation then breaks because of missing headers like
qptrlist.h and so on, install libqt3-compat-headers and optionally flame
the Qt maintainer(s) for not including them in their standard Qt
development installation. And tell upstream that they're using legacy
headers as the Qt maintainers are expecting you to, which is why they've
chosen to break Qt in this way.
