compiling a simple program with qt

I followed the directions at to try to compile the example there called main.cpp. I have libqt3-mt. I just installed libqt2-mt-dev and all of the dependencies it needs. I do not know why I am getting these errors. What should I do?

chris@ubuntu:~/qt$ qmake -project
chris@ubuntu:~/qt$ qmake
chris@ubuntu:~/qt$ make
g++ -c -pipe -Wall -W -O2 -D_REENTRANT -DQT_NO_DEBUG -DQT_THREAD_SUPPORT -I/usr/share/qt3/mkspecs/default -I. -I. -I/usr/share/qt3/include -o main.o main.cpp
main.cpp:1:28: error: QApplication: No such file or directory
main.cpp:2:27: error: QPushButton: No such file or directory
main.cpp: In function ‘int main(int, char**)’:
main.cpp:6: error: ‘QApplication’ was not declared in this scope
main.cpp:6: error: expected `;' before ‘app’
