For a library "foo", the actual library is usually in "libfoo", perhaps
with a number appended.

Generally libfoo-dev, sometimes with a number after the foo.

libqt3-mt-dev for the headers, which will pull in libqt3c102 which
contains the actual library.  The "-mt" is for "multi-threaded" and is a
particular feature of that version of the library.  The "c102" comes
from the C++ ABI transition
(http://people.debian.org/~rmurray/c++transition.html) but will
eventually dissappear.
