In the Trinity source tree is a directory named experimental. There 
are some scripts there to convert KDE3 apps to TDE. Tim and Slavek 
are better qualified to explain how to use the scripts. We should 
have a wiki article.

I don't know that pure Qt3 apps (rather than KDE3 apps) can be 
converted with those scripts. I presume the best approach is to 
install the original Qt3 in your chroot and build the app there. I 
haven't tinkered with that but as TQt3 normally is installed in 
/opt/trinity, there should be no conflicts installing the original 
Qt3 in /usr.

I have no idea whether the original Qt3 will conflict with Qt4.
