OK, I decided to wait until 3.1.1 and I now have removed the conflict I
had with Karolina and Sid packages. All seems well now. I have installed
libqt3-dev (first time I have been able to install that in a LONG time)
and yipee!! The configure script gets past the Qt stage. However (and I
bet you knew this would come!), it only gets as far as "checking for
KDE" and stops as it can't find the header files. I'm pretty sure that
the kde headers were one of the packages removed during the 3.1.0 ->
3.1.1 upgrade. So, I try and apt-get install on kdebase-dev and I get:
The following packages will be REMOVED:

DOH! But, I notice it wants to install libqt3-mt-dev. Anyway, I go ahead
with this and sure enough, the configure script is back to failing at
QT. If I try and do an apt-get install of libqt3-dev again, then it
wants to remove kdebase-dev, libqt3-mt-dev and a few other things so it
looks like I just can't have both on at once. 

Am I doing something wrong here? Or are there some dependency issues in
Sid that is causing this problem?

Any help would be appreciated!
