What do I need to install for make xconfig to work?

I try to run it and it says I need the QT development package. What is the name of the package so I can install it with apt?

the graphical version is no better than the ncurses interface (make menuconfig) try that one.

there's no point in installing the whole qt-source when menuconfig is just as easy as xconfig. try it.
