I spoke too soon. I tried compiling 2.0.4 and it compiled with no

This seems like the only thing left to point the finger at. If you upgrade
libqt-dev, you might as well upgrade libqt2 for good measure, even if it
doesn't do so automatically, just to make sure. Then try again. If it does
not work this time, I don't know what is going on.
Note that apt might insist that you download bits of kde along with the qt
libs. This happened to me, though I don't see why.
