Angry Installing KDE 3.2.3 w/konstruct gives Qt lib error while compiling...

k. I got Mandrake 9.2 after switching over like 8 diff distros to try to get my Pctel AC97 Dell Inspiron 1100 modem to work .. lol, yeah it was a big prob to get that baby working..

Anyways, finally i got it working with mandrake 9.2 kernel 2.4.22, kde 3.1..

well, i was happy so i decided to upgrade to KDE 3.2.3, i downloaded konstruct and i did a

cd /home/user/konstruct/meta/everything
then executed the

make install
..... that took quite some time (it downloaded and compiled everything)
never finished thought ..

It started checking then when it got to

Checking for Qt...
i got the error!!

configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.2) (library qt-mt) not found. Please check your installation.   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 compile it with thread support.. i downloaded qt-x11-free-3.3.2.tar.gz and did this

./configure -thread
then i executed the

after that finish (which also took quite some time lol)
i went back to konstruct and tried the 'make install' again.. still got the missing lib files or whatver that error is..

Guys.. i been trying this over and been looking around and still cant fix this.. any way to fix this any more info just ask..

thanks dudes appreciate the help..

enter this before compiling KDE again.........

export QTDIR=/opt/qt
qt should be a symlink to /opt/qt<version>
