unless I do not remember well, the compilation process should not use 
"moc" from QT directly, but instead use "moc-tqt" from TQT ...
These 2 tools do not use the same syntax, that's why it's failing here.

I suppose it's because /opt/trinity/bin should be the first in your $PATH.
Once you have compiled & installed TQT to /opt/trinity/ , you should set 
your environnment to use it BEFORE the standard path.

You may have seen a warning during the ARTS "./configure", saying 
something like "you are trying to compile without TQT". It should NOT 
occur, except when compiling TQT itself.
Until you see this warning in the ./configure , you cannot compile 

Example of my compilation commands:
$ export PATH=/opt/trinity/bin:$PATH
I've noticed that for most Trinity components I must also set the 
LDFLAGS variable or else linking fails: (adjust the directories as needed)
$ export LDFLAGS="-I/opt/trinity/include -L/opt/trinity/lib64"
Then I can run ...
$ ./configure XXXXXXXXX
$ make .......

Note that I do not set other environment variables and I do not have a  
special ...
These 2 variables are sufficient on my computer.

Good luck !
