Question QT3...where is qconfig.h?

Running Debian Etch stable, have qt3-dev-tools (3.3.7-4) which depends on libqt3-headers, and seems to throw the qt3 headers files in /usr/include/qt3/private. Trying to compile kernel w/xconfig but fails saying it can't find the QT3 installation. Opened up the Makefile and it's checking if qconfig.h exists in $QTDIR. But I have no qconfig.h anywhere on my machine.

So I search debian's packages and qconfig.h can be found in libqt3-mt-dev. So I do an `apt-get install qt3-mt-dev` and the following results:
Package libqt3-mt-dev is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
libqt3-headers qt3-dev-tools
E: Package libqt3-mt-dev has no installation candidate

I have those two packages installed, however they do not contain a qconfig.h file anywhere. Now what?

PS: just changing the makefile to look for a different file gets past the "Unable to find QT3..." errors however I'm left with tons of (c) compilation errors.

Never mind...resolved.

First, updated my sources.list file (I did a dist-upgrade from Sarge recently):
deb stable main contrib non-free
deb-src stable main contrib non-free
deb etch/updates main contrib non-free
#apt-get update
#apt-get remove libqt3-headers qt3-dev-tools
#apt-get install libqt3-mt-dev

That last command didn't give me an error, and compiling the kernel now (after using xconfig).
