I'm not saying much for 2 reasons.

  1) I've been out of town and have not had the time to respond to email
  2) The problem is NOT in libqt

There is no problem with the dependencies.  The problem lies in libpng.  All
I did with a new libqt upload was force a resolution before the problem
occured.   libpng3 is not backwards compatable and yet both -dev packages
provide libpng-dev.  And since most qt/kde packages depend on libpng2-dev |
libpng-dev there would eventually be a problem.  Shoot, we didn't even
know there was a problem until I rebuilt libqt with the newer png and
uploaded it.

And just because I'm not saying much on this mailing list about something
doesn't mean there is justification for a non maintainer update.  There is
a procedure for that and someone who doesn't know the full jist of the problem
is far from the right person to call for one.
