qt path problem

For some reason, some of my programs aren't finding some qt shared objects. I know my path is wrong, because I have several versions of qt laying around. The path (I think) is only ooking at the most recent version of qt. The most recent is in /usr/lib/qt3. (There isa list of my /usr/lib/qt* files following.)

Can someone help me set up the paths correctly?

/usr/lib>>>> echo $QTDIR

For example, when I try to start xmms, I get: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Yet, the file /usr/lib/qt-2.3.2/lib/ exists.

Here is a dump of some recent commands:

/usr/lib>>>> ls qt*
bin include lib

bin doc etc lib plugins

bin include lib

bin etc include mkspecs pics qmake templates translations
doc extensions lib phrasebooks plugins src tools tutorial

/usr/lib>>>> lsqt-2.3.2/lib/
