Ok. I also found some minor things that we can also change - use the 
.qmake.cache file in /usr/share/qt3/.qmake.cache directly instead of just 
providing it in the doc section for libqt3-mt-dev and libqt3-dev. TT 
confirmed that configure has a bug in producing a proper qconfig.h which will 
be fixed in Qt 3.2 beta 2; from there we'll backport this to our Qt build 
plus fixing the compat-headers to set them on Recommends for libqt3-headers.

We're not a company, we just produce better code at less costs.
