Question No rule to make target `/mkspecs/default/qmake.conf', needed by `Makefile'. Stop

I'm trying to install aBbackup, from Freashmeat. I have RedHat 9.

I have unpacked the aBbackup0.2_beta.tar.gz archive. Now I follow the instructions:

2.4 Setting your $QTDIR variable

Go in console and type:

# echo $QTDIR

If the above command returns nothing, empty string, that means that your QTDIR
variable isn't initialized. Edit the ~/.bashrc directory (it is located in /home/user/.bashrc, hence '~'), and at the
end of the file add

export QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt3

if your Qt Libraries are installed in the '/usr/lib/qt3' directory.

My Qt libraries are installed (I think) in /usr/lib/qt-3.1, therefore I add

export QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt-3.1

Save the changes and re-login. Now you have your QTDIR variable set.

However, when I type # echo $QTDIR, the command still returns nothing.
And if I go to the aBbackup0.2beta2 directory and type # make, I receive the following message

make: *** No rule to make target `/mkspecs/default/qmake.conf', needed by `Makefile'. Stop.

If it can help, two lines in the makefile refer to /mkspecs/default/

INCPATH = -I$(QTDIR)/mkspecs/default -I. -I$(QTDIR)/include -I.ui/ -Isrc -I.moc/

Makefile: $(QTDIR)/mkspecs/default/qmake.conf

Any suggestions to solve this problem?
