My Fedora 1.0 QT lib is not working

I tried to compile a QT program and it complain during "configure" like this
PHP Code:
Could not run Qt test programchecking why...
Configure discovered/uses these settings:
Qt libraries: /usr/lib/qt-3.1/lib
*** Qt headers: /usr/lib/qt-3.1/include
Compilation of Qt utilities also might be turned off (if not wanted).
***    If 
you are experiencing problems which will not be described
***    bellow please report then on '' mailing list
***    (
i.esome misdetection or omitted path)
Qt test program compiledbut did not runThis usually means
*** that the run-time linker is not finding Qt library or finding the wrong
*** version of Qt. If it is not finding Qtyou will need to set your
*** LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, or edit /etc/ to point
*** to the installed location  Alsomake sure you have run ldconfig if that
*** is required on your system.
*** If 
you have an old version installedit is best to remove italthough
*** you may also be able to get things to work by modifying LD_LIBRARY_PATH
i.ebashexport LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/qt-3.1/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH 

I already check my /etc/ . one of the line in there is "/usr/lib/qt-3.1" . I also check the existance of the lib by going to "/usr/lib/qt-3.1/lib". My $QTDIR also OK . It points to "/usr/lib/qt-3.1". What other tricks I've been missing?..... and ofcourse I did thousand times of "ldconfig".

Have you checked config.log yet?

And what version of Qt does the software require?
