Trouble getting .configure to find QT

hi, I'm trying to install komba2-0.7.3. running the configure script I get the following
checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 2.2.2) (headers and libraries) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log

following the instructions to read config.log I find the following

#if ! (QT_VERSION >= 222)
#error 1

int main() {
QStringList *t = new QStringList();
QIconView iv(0);
QString s;
s.setLatin1("Elvis is alive", 14);
int magnolia = QEvent::Speech; /* new in 2.2 beta2 */
return 0;

I recently compiled QT version 4.5, did I install QT incorrectly or do I have to downgrade QT?

thanks for the help in advance.

Looks like that is a pretty old app that is no longer maintained. I went to to look at the docs and got the following response:
NOTE: As of 2008-10-23 directory index display has been disabled by default.
Anyway, there were some major changes in Qt4 and the configure script is only checking for up to Qt3, so in order to compile Komba, I think you are going to have to install an older version of Qt.
