First off, designer comes with a set of plugins, and expects a plugins
directory to exist under $QTDIR. It doesn't look as though the current qt3
packages provide one. I think my installation has been working because I
had installed qt3 already under /usr/local, and .. well, long story.

I don't know what the 'styles' directory is for. I'm thinking the sqldrivers
directory is for the database module. I don't think I built that one, which
would explain why that directory is empty in that listing ..
I would install these under /usr/share/qt. Designer currently always looks
