Configure error: QT not found

I have just installed the "hot off the presses" SUSE 9.1 64bit version on my home computer. While it has updated rpms for almost everything there are a few KDE programs that I would like to compile... everytime I get the same error

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.1 (20021021)) (library qt-mt) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.
Make sure that you have compiled Qt with thread support!

I have all of the devel packages installed, and I believe SUSE compiles QT with thread support. I have done an echo $QTDIR which shows /usr/lib/qt3, which is correct... what am I missing? (Since you have to have 32bit and 64bit libraries, /usr/lib/qt3 has lib and a lib64 subdirectories... could this have anything to do with it?)

Not sure, but perhaps try making your $QTDIR /usr/lib/qt3/lib64

You have Qt 3 but is it greater than 3.1? It might only be version 3. Do
pkg-config --modversion qt-mt
to find out

For reference pkg-config --modversion qt-mt responds with 3.3.1 as I would have figured being a brand spanking new release. The QTDIR /usr/lib/qt3/lib64 has taken me past the QT errors, but now I get errors during the make stage with /usr/lib/ again, I would assume it should be using libs from /usr/lib64, but is there anyway I can force this...
