make Xconfig doesn't work, make menuconfig does work Debian/KDE

I'm using a Debian system that I installed from Knoppix 5.1.1. That's running on a 2.6.19 i believe. Now I've downloaded the source of In the beginning make config/menuconfig/xconfig didn't work at all so I tried to uninstall gcc and reinstall it. Again no help. Then with google I found I needed some other utils so I installed this:
apt-get install build-essential bin86 kernel-package libqt3-headers libqt3-mt-dev wget libncurses5 libncurses5-dev

Yes!! Now "make menuconfig" works but still make xconfig doesn't want to work. Now I get this:
root@XXX:/home/YYY/Kernel/linux- make xconfig
/usr/bin/moc -i scripts/kconfig/qconf.h -o scripts/kconfig/qconf.moc
make[1]: /usr/bin/moc: Command not found
make[1]: *** [scripts/kconfig/qconf.moc] Error 127
make: *** [xconfig] Error 2

Try installing "qt3-dev-tools".
