As 'Shaleh' pointed out in the man page, bash checks commmands from the
file /etc/profile, if that file exists. After reading that file, it
looks for ~/.bash_profile, ~/.bash_login, and ~/.profile, in that
order, and reads and executes commands from the first one that exists
and is readable.
~.bash_profile is the relevant file in my system and if I add
export QTDIR=/usr/share/qt to .bash_profile, QTDIR is correctly defined
in my environment variables, but that fixes only part of the problem.
I have listed my source, makefile and make output in another posting
