is it the only variable failing?

do you write it like this?:

export QTDIR=/wherever/the/directory/IS

strange..., it should work...,
another idea:
how do you check if it is defined?
you can try to type "export" in the command line to see if it is defined.
to add something to the path it is not needed to do export, it's enough if you do something like:
PATH=/whatever/QTdirg/blah/bin/:$PATH

good luck.
