Bug#183297: mq3: Uninstallable, depends on old Qt libs

tags 183297 + patch


It seems a very easy problem:
Its dependancy for the old QT libs is IMHO due to the fact that is not
even buildable.

apt-get build-dep mq3 returns an error, as it build-requires BOTH
libqt3-dev and libqt3-mt-dev, which are conflicting packages.

removing the first one from the dependencies and adding
libqt3-compat-headers make it work. There are
also a little more fixes to do in the source code to make it buildable.

The dependancies are then automatically updated to the new QT libs, as
they are not hard-coded in the control file but automatically generated
by the "Depends: ${shlibs:Depends}" statement.

I enclose a patch to fix this problem.

As this patch is going to fix its rc bugs, there is no more need to
exclude it from the next release.

This bug is open since march, 2003: if you haven't got the time to
maintain mq3 properly I'll be happy to work on it, adopting the package
or through co-maintainership, if you prefer.

Yours sincerely,
