LinRAR installation question

I'm trying to install LinRAR on my FC2 machine because it's kind of a pain having to use a terminal to extract RAR files. I have installed RAR and UnRAR successfully, and I have downloaded the tarball for LinRAR. After extracting the tar file and changing directories to the linrar folder the extraction creates, I try to run the ./ command and receive an error:

[root@user-0ce2hmc linrar0.1]# ./
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lqt
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I'm not sure what I've done wrong here... Any suggestions are welcome and greatly appreciated.

I got the same err message compiling my QT-based widhets.
This should help (Fedora Core 2)
1. make sure you have -L$(QTDIR)/lib linker option in your Makefile(s)
2. You have two options:
A) change "-lqt" in Makefile(s) to "-lqt-mt" in linker (ld) options
B) make symlink in QT dir:
ln -s $QTDIR/lib/ $QTDIR/lib/

Good luck!
