They may link dynamically to Qt, of course.  But remember that LSB
Compliant Applications can't depend on the system to provide any
interfaces or libraries that aren't specified by the LSB.  Since C++
(and thusly any library that uses C++) isn't yet included in the LSB,
the application will have to bring those libraries along with it.

Personally, I have yet to be convinced that the LSB makes an
interesting target for Free Software developers.  I certainly could be
wrong... ;-)
