Smile Cannot find correct Qt headers!

I downloaded a UnixODBC library for Linux. I untarred the tarball and ran the configure utility. It is saying the following:

configure: checking for Qt
checking for Qt headers... no
configure: error: cannot find correct Qt headers!

It can not find the QT headers. My Linux version is:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 6)
Kernel :2.6.9-67.0.7.ELsmp
Kernel Version: #1 SMP Wed Feb 27 04:48:20 EST 2008
machine: i686
processor: i686
hardware-platform: i386
Operating System: GNU/Linix

This information is found with uname. Evidently, I do not have the QT headers on my box. I need to know the following so I can get the System Administrators to install them:

1. Where can I get the QT headers development package from?
2. What are these headers used for. They seem to be outside of the regular Linux installation.

Any help would be appreciated.

Look for libqt4-devel or libqt3-devel and libqt4-devel-doc or libqt3-devel in your package system. Or enter "rpm -qa | grep 'qt.*devel' to see if you have them installed. The uname command returns info on the architecture and kernel version, but not info on what package is installed.
