Problem installing Kile 1.8

I'm trying to install kile 1.8, but I get the following error while configuring:

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.2) (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 installed qt-devel-3.3.4-0.fc3.0 from rpm. This is with thread support I assume?

So I checked if this library isn't there, but it is and I also installed the devel packages of kde and qt. So I tried the following:

./configure --prefix=/usr --with-qt-dir=/usr/lib/qt-3.3
I get the same thing. Somebody any suggestions?

did it really put the qt prefix at
that doesn't sound right
that would make
and like that ?

anyway you need add the bin path to PATH
and the lib/pkgconfig path to PKG_CONFIG_PATH
and set QTDIR to the proper prefix

also when you install a KDE app you need to use the same --prefix= as your KDE installation

You are right, the prefix is /usr/lib/qt-3.3/lib

I solved the problem by adding the above path to /etc/ and run /sbin/ldconfig. That was the reason it coudn't find the libraries
