QT headaches

I've been trying to install f4l, but I've been getting the following error:

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.0.3) (library qt-mt) not found$
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.
Make sure that you have compiled Qt with thread support!
I did recently install QT 3.3.3 and set the environment varaibles PATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH, MANPATH, and QTPATH to point to the right places, but I still get the error. Any suggestions?

Check the configure script to find out whether
it does a "or better" comparison, or whether it
wants the exact version.

Also check on HOW it checks, you may be
able to 'cheat' configure by creating a symlink
from libqt-mt to one with the older version...

ln -s

I don't consider myself very good at shell scripting, so I couldn't do much. I did, however, find a spot in the configure script where I could tinker and make it run to conclusion and produce a make file. Unfortunately, make failed.

I found the library file named in the path located in LD_LIBRARY_PATH, but, from the source code, it looks like the configure script searches for all versions up to and including 3.1.1. I'm not good enough with shell scripts to tell for sure how it searches though. I'll keep working on it.

Thanks for your help.
