qupzilla-1.8.8 - many build errors

qupzilla-1.8.0 says it works with "qt-everything-4.7.0 and up"

most errors are missing headers (ie, c++ std::sort, which is actually a hacked non-compatible STL recent addition incompatible with the real STL). many, annoying, but simple to fix.

but also i've having plugin issues and am being forced to disable plugin build (there's no option, i have to hack by hand). i'm unsure if this will be successful in then end (allow basic browsing), appears to be Qt problems. these problems are NASTY.

i'm using qt-everywhere-4.7.4 and getting ".ui user interface script parse errors". but that's not all. i'm getting missing stuff in critical areas: like c++ members moved from one core class to another (ie, which c++ object has the member which tells the widget layout calculator (see motif) where in widget border to put a button. just critical stuff that shouldn't ever change that kills software if changed: and i'm just 0.0.4)

am i halucinating? or is qupzilla hard to build?

why am i having a hard time?

((wow i'm dissapointed in qt: hacky to build and just 0.0.4 off cannot build a qt app. it looks like stolen X11/Motif/gtk even at code level. i'd hoped having "apple" ties it would not be such a developer nightmare. but it's just as flaky as any X11 wrapper lib while offering no multimedia hardware support either (ie, hardware mpeg chips on video cards support, outgoing call support, u name it). it's just another delicate bloat widget hack as far as i can tell. originally qt had offered "ability of apple users to publish multimedia on foreign platforms". it wasn't a widget lib at all. i have no idea where qt-everything got it's charter from))

QUESTION: why is qupzilla "the more like safari better than mozilla" browser such a pain?

should remove (the already hack fixed build 4.7.4) and fix/build/install qt-4.7.0 ? if i do that do i need like 100 versions (perhaps 10000) of qt on my system to build other "qt software" as well as 100 versions of gcc ?

should i assume the author was poorly misinformed: that "qt-4.7.0 and up" is wrong that only qt-4.7.0 would work and only if your lucky at that? that qt just hacks what they need for their code and could care less what breaks in others?

REAL QUESTION: is 4.7.0 going to make qupzilla an easy build? or is that a pipe dream: will i still have all kinds of fixes to apply, while also having issues finding "the right 4.7.0 release" and providing it with it's versional demands (thus possible requiring a whole build chain in another libpath to resolve the demands)?

I think it's better to ask a single question (e.g., errors when compiling qupzilla) and include
  • information about the platform where you are building the software
  • the command(s) you use to build it
  • the error messages you get
  • what help you are requesting
