The latest iteration of the XForms exception statement I know of is:

| You may link this software with XForms (Copyright (C) by T.C. Zhao and
| Mark Overmars) and distribute the resulting binary, under the
| restrictions in clause 3 of the GPL, even though the resulting binary
| is not, as a whole, covered by the GPL. (You still need a license to
| do so from the owner(s) of the copyright for XForms; see the XForms
| copyright statement). If a derivative no longer requires XForms, you
| may use the unsupplemented GPL as its license by deleting this
| paragraph and therefore removing this exemption for XForms.

For Qt I belive one could simply

s/XForms copyright statement/Q Public License/
s/T.C. Zhao and MarkOvermars/Troll Tech AS/
