Here are my notes for building tqt3 on Slackware 14 (the build actually 
worked with qt4 installed as well, although I haven't tried really 
running the trinity software):

git clone (checks out the 
tqt3 source to /mnt/data/trinity/src/tqt3 on my system)
export QTDIR=/mnt/data/trinity/src/tqt3
export PATH=/mnt/data/trinity/src/tqt3/bin:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/mnt/data/trinity/src/tqt3/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
./configure -prefix /opt/trinity/
make install

There's also a file called "INSTALL" in the tqt3 source directory that 
has hints about building it.

In case this helps...
