boy do I have a patch for you.  :)  actually I'm almost done with a patch
to send to whoever at Opie which takes alot of hardcoded values and
centralizes them (pathing that is)...it's going to need some tweaks beyond
what I'm doing but it should help.

package naming is a pain in the ass.  Especially since there is a opie package
that already exists (opie is the source name and they have a libopie-dev)..
it's the one time password stuff.  Plus with multiple possible versions of
these packages (fb or x11 based).  I have most of these with a -qte extension..
maybe I should change them to a -fb extension instead....

heh...the new qt/e2 packages have been renamed...still waiting for them to
get out of New status.  The new naming scheme better follows polciy.

libqte2  + libqte-mt2  (ie, library name+soname)

the offical ones. :)    I'm the Qt/Embedded maintainer as well for Debian.
Gives me an advantage over others...hehe

the deb apt line I posted will give you the almost latest until they finally
get out of New and get installed.
